Traveling down the Mississippi to the open air of Busch Stadium from the confines and the cold of the Metrodome for Game 3 of the 1987 World Series saw a tense pitching duel between Twins starter Les Straker and John Tudor of the Cardinals…..as Les Straker was the first Venezuelan to pitch in the World Series.

After five scoreless innings by both teams, the Twins broke through in the top of the 6th inning…..when Tom Brunansky’s RBI single looked like all the offense the game would see….but, in the bottom of the 7th….Twins reliever Juan Berenguer took over for Straker….only to surrendered leadoff back-to-back singles to Jose Oquendo and Tony Peña of the Cards….when Terry Pendleton sacrificed the runners to 2nd and 3rd….and Vince Coleman slammed a two-run double to give the Cards a 2–1 lead….Ozzie Smith followed by singling in Coleman for the final run….as Cards’ Todd Worrell closed out the win for John Tudor.
