MLB – 1987 – NLCS Game 4 Cardinals Vs Giants PreGame Show With Marv Albert + Joe Morgan + Vin Scully

The Giants knotted the series at 2 – 2….mostly by the longball…..along with another complete-game pitching performance….with this time being by Giants P Mike Krukow…..as he was touched for two runs in the 2nd on RBI singles by opposing pitcher Danny Cox and Vince Coleman….but then pitched shutout ball the rest of the way….then Giants’ Robby Thompson hit a homer in the 4th….and Jeffrey Leonard put the Giants ahead 3 – 2 in the 5th with his fourth homer in the NLCS….and that’s when C Bob Brenly closed out the scoring with a shot in the 8th.

San Francisco’s Jeffrey Leonard was named the Series MVP…..despite the fact that his Giants lost the series….and oddly enough…..this was the second consecutive year that the NLCS MVP came from the losing team….as Mike Scott had won the award with the Houston Astros the previous year….however, to date, Leonard is the last MVP of any postseason series (League Championship Series or World Series) to have played for the losing team.
