Game 1 – 1978 Tournament Replay Brewers vs Yankees

Final Four time and this is an elite match up. #4 Milwaukee Brewers vs #1 New York Yankees.

The Brewers send righty Lary Sorensen (18-12 3.21 Grade 14) to the mound opposite Cy Young winner Ron Guidry (25-3 1.74 Grade 24).

Great pitching matchup and it didn’t disappoint. Both pitchers hold the offenses scoreless through 7 inning. In the bottom of the 8th the Yankees finally get on the board. Bucky Dent singles to lead off the inning but is only on second with 2 outs. Lou Piniella once again comes through, this time with an RBI double. With the score 1-0 Reggie Jackson would make it 3-0 with a 2 run shot to right center off Sorensen. Guidry would set the Brewers down in the 9th and the Yankees lead 1-0.

Final Score: Yankees 3, Brewers 0
