in 1988, Limping Kirk Gibson hits homerun.



On this day in 1988, a limping Kirk Gibson hit a pinch-hit ninth inning home run off A’s closer Dennis Eckersley  to give the Dodgers a 1-0 series lead. It’s the first time a World Series game is ever decided on a come-from-behind home run in the final inning. (John Iacono/SI)
