Game 4 – 1985 Tournament Replay Blue Jays @ Mets

Blue Jays get back in the series with a win in Game 3 and they send Jimmy Key (14-6 3.00 Grade 14Z) to the hill opposite Sid Fernandez (9-9 2.80 Grade 10XY).

 

The Blue Jays would finally strike first as they pick up a run in the 3rd as Garth Iorg singles in Tony Fernandez. In the bottom of the 4th the Mets would get that run right back as Darryl Strawberry connects again in this tournament. The pitchers would settle in after that and lock this game down as we would go to the 9th still 1-1.

 

In the top of the 9th, Jesse Barfield would draw a walk and Willie Upshaw would take the Fernandez offering over the centerfield wall for a 3-1 lead. Mets fans were calling for Orosco. Dennis Lamp would come on and get the last 3 outs and pick up a save and we have ourselves a best of 3 series now.
