Game 6 – 1985 Tournament Replay Expos at Angels

Angles lead 3-2 and coming home send Don Sutton (13-8 3.89 Grade 7Z) to the mound and the Expos send Bill Gullickson (14-12 3.52 Grade 8Z).


The Expos come out of the gate in the 1st with 2 runs. Hubie Brooks and Terry Francona with RBI singles. The Angels would get those right back in the bottom as Rob Carew would triple in a run and Reggie Jackson would bring in Carew. It would remain 2-2 until the 4th when the Expos would put up a 3 spot, courtesy of a 3 run homer by Tim Raines. The Angels would get one back in the bottom half as Bobby Grich would homer off Gullickson.


The Expos would pick up an insurance run in the 8th to make it 6-3 and despite a solo homer by Brian Downing in the bottom of the 9th the Expos win the game 6-4 and send the series to a winner take all Game 7.
