Epic Games in Blue Jays History: Overcoming a 10 Run Deficit

On Sunday, June 4, 1989 the Toronto Blue Jays staged one of the biggest comebacks in baseball history.  It was the 3rd game of a 3 game set for the Jays at Fenway and they were looking to sweep this critical series.  Down 10-0 after 6, the Jays scratched back to score 11 in the final 3 innings to send the game to extras.  Junior Felix was the hero, hitting a 2 run shot in the top of the 12th.  Duane Ward pitched the final 3 innings for the win.  That’s just the Coles Notes version – for the real deal, watch and listen to the sultry tones of Tom Cheek recapping the game below.

    I have to hand it to Cito. He left in all of the starters and they eventually got to the Sox pen.

    Good point. But whether that was by design or not is anyone’s guess…
