MLB – 1987 – World Series – St Louis Cardinals Vs Minnesota Twins – Game 2 – Top Of 1st Inning

Game 2 of the 1987 World Series between the St Louis Cardinals verses the Minnesota Twins took place on Sunday, October 18, 1987 at 7:25 pm (CT) at the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome in Minneapolis, Minnesota….and featured Twins future Hall of Fame P Bert Blyleven against the Cardinals big right-hander Danny Cox.

While improving on their game one performance, the Cards were unable to hold the Twins offense again….and fell behind 7–0 before beginning to rally. The Cards’ total of nine hits was just one short of the Twins….but their bats lacked power….as they managed only one double against three doubles and two home runs hit by Minnesota. The Twins broke the game open in the fourth….while scoring six runs and chasing starter Danny Cox from the game.

The final score was 8 – 4….as Randy Bush and Tim Laudner each came through with a pair of two-run-scoring hits in the fourth.   Blyleven would win his only game of the Series…..as the Twins took a 2 – 0 lead into St Louis for Game 3.
