Game 6 – 1985 Tournament Replay Astros @ Dodgers

Astros have won 2 in a row and have momentum. They send Mike Scott (18-8 3.29 Grade 13Y) to the mound to get to Game 7 as the Dodgers send Bob Welch (14-4 2.41 Grade 14YZ).


The Dodgers would get on the board first as they get a RBI single from Mariano Duncan to make it 1-0. Scott and Welch keep the bats quiet until the 6th as the Astros would tie it up 1-1. Kevin Bass would take Welch out to center field. The Dodgers would get that run back in the bottom half as Ken Landreaux singles home Greg Brock. In the 8th the Dodgers would get an insurance run courtesy of a Bill Madlock RBI single. The Astros would get 2 runners on in the 9th but Tom Niedenfuer would come on to get the last 2 outs and send the Dodgers to the Final Four! Dodgers win the series 4-2.


Final Score: Dodgers 3, Astros 1

WP: Bob Welch (3-0)
