MLB – 1986 – World Series Red Sox Vs Mets Game 3 Top Of 1st Inning – With Vin Scully + Joe Garagiola

The Mets bounced back from their early-series sluggishness in the top of the first inning….when Lenny Dykstra led off with a home run to give the Mets an early lead…..then after two singles, Gary Carter followed with an RBI double….and Danny Heep drove in two runners with a single to give the Mets a 4 – 0 lead in the first inning.  After the rocky start, Red Sox starter Oil Can Boyd settled down….but Bob Ojeda pitched well….and Boston was unable to overcome their early deficit.  In his first at bat in the World Series, Don Baylor almost homered in the second inning but it turned out to be a double off the Green Monster.

Ojeda gave up an RBI single to Marty Barrett in the bottom of the third inning….but this would prove to be the only Boston run of the game…..as Mets C Gary Carter drove in two runners with a bases-loaded single in the seventh inning….and Ray Knight drove in Darryl Strawberry….who singled and moved to third on two wild pitches…..with a double in the eighth inning off of Joe Sambito…..as Roger McDowell pitched the final two frames to seal a 7 – 1 Mets victory.
