To figure that out I counted every starter who was a regular in a rotation for a team that won the World Series.

But Tapani got Gant out on a foul popup and Justice on a fly out to end the threat. The statue is of Puckett rounding second base, pumping his fists after hitting the dramatic walk-off home run. On the pitch before, with a 1–2 count on him, Pendleton appeared to swing and miss for strike three (which Morris believed Pendleton did). After the 1991 Series, the Twins did not play in Atlanta again until 2011 for two pre-season exhibition games at Turner Field.

Hrbek, who had not gotten a hit in his last 16 at-bats dating back to his single in the eighth inning of Game 3, was next up, and Brown would be scheduled after Hrbek since Brown had pinch-run for the power-hitting Davis.

And the Twins have won this game, 4 to 3, on a dramatic home run by Kirby Puckett!

During the game, a Kent Hrbek pop foul hit Commissioner Fay Vincent's daughter Anne in the head. These starting pitchers won the most World Series titles. Their close concentration of titles in the late 1920s, the late 1930s, from 1949-53, and in the 1990s, accounts for several of the pitchers. Both managers emptied their benches to give playing time to non-starters.
Game 7 of this series was the last World Series game played at the Metrodome before the Twins moved out at the end of the 2009 season, and would be the last postseason baseball game played at the venue until 2002, when the Twins lost the ALCS to the Angels. After retiring Chili Davis for the second out of the inning, Avery faced another slump-ridden bitter in Shane Mack, who had been held without a hit to that point in the series. Column four above shows the combined WAR (Wins Above Replacement) for each season the pitcher was in a championship rotation.

The Twins then traded away both Scott Erickson and Kevin Tapani (neither ever regained their 1991 form) in the 1995 season, as well as Kirby Puckett to retirement due to a loss of vision in his right eye caused by glaucoma. The Braves countered with Charlie Leibrandt, who was the only Brave with Series exposure.

Immediately in the bottom half, the unheralded Leius drilled Glavine's first pitch into the left-field seats for what proved to be the game-winning home run.[22]. But then Justice singled to right and after Brian Hunter popped out, Justice stole second on an 0–2 pitch to Greg Olson.

He moved to third on Knoblauch's lineout to right and scored on Puckett's center field sacrifice fly and the Twins led 3–2. Game 4 was all Alan Trammell, as the Tigers' All-Star Game shortstop clouted two-run homers in the first and third innings, accounting for all of Detroit's runs in their 4-2 win. He explained "everybody watches the feet on the replays, but if you watch his upper body, he's falling over and in my judgment his momentum after he hit the bag carried him on and off." [31] It was also the first World Series-deciding game to go into extra innings since Game 4 of the 1939 World Series.

Cox was forced to bring in Alejandro Peña to pitch to Shane Mack.

The two jubilant groups eventually merged in the middle of the diamond. They returned to the World Series the following year, but lost in six games to the Toronto Blue Jays.

AL Minnesota Twins (4) vs. NL Atlanta Braves (3).

After uncharacteristically taking a strike and two balls from Leibrandt, Puckett launched the next pitch into the left-center-field seats for a dramatic game-winning home run that tied the Series at three games apiece. Chief Bender pitched for five A’s teams that won the pennant, and three that captured the World Series. As was the custom in the first three games, the Twins scored first.

The Braves tied it in the third when Terry Pendleton hit his first post-season home run. The Braves were one win away from their first world championship since 1957 while the Twins were returning to the Metrodome where they had a 9–1 postseason record (including 6–0 in the World Series) entering the do-or-die Game 6.

In the NLCS, Avery had not allowed a run to the Pirates in ​16 1⁄3 innings. In the top of the seventh, Pagliarulo homered to give the Twins the lead, 2–1. But the ball hit Bream's leg, resulting in Bream being called out for runner interference but Olson being safe at first. Submarine specialist Carl Mays is the only man to win a World Series as a regular starting pitcher for both the Yankees (1923) and Red Sox (1916 and 1918). 1991 World Series (4–3): Minnesota Twins (A.L.)

The Braves ended the seventh with an 11–3 lead and the announcers began talking about the chances of the two teams in Game 6. After Jarvis Brown came in to run for Davis, Harper attempted to move him over with a bunt down the first base line. The ceremonial first pitch of the World Series prior to Game 1 was thrown by retired AL umpire Steve Palermo, who had been forced into early retirement when he was seriously injured by gunshot while coming to the aid of a robbery victim in Dallas on July 7, 1991. It was still 2-1 in the fifth when Larry Herndon homered with two out and a man on, giving the Tigers a 3-2 edge. However, the 2013 Red Sox would join the 1991 Twins as the only teams to win the World Series a year after finishing in last place.

As Mercker came into the game, Tim McCarver theorized on the CBS broadcast that the Twins might be forced to use one of their pitchers as a pinch hitter if the inning continued. Tim McCarver explained on the CBS broadcast the specific reason why Lemke was called safe instead of out. As a result, the relay reached Harper before Smith got to the plate. In his three WS-winning seasons, Koufax accumulated 20.9 WAR, which trails only the Yankee trio of Ruffing, Gomez, and Ford, all of whom were on six championship teams. He later pitched in three more pennant-winning rotations for the Yankees (1976-78), winning two more championships. Jack Morris, the pitching hero of the series, signed with Toronto and returned to the World Series the next year. After the Twins' triumph, the 1993 Phillies, 1998 Padres, 2007 Rockies and the 2008 Rays followed previous season's last-place finishes with a World Series appearance, but fell short.

Manager Tom Kelly explained later that he wanted Knoblauch to take the turn around first to draw the throw away from the plate and allow the run to score. In the bottom of the eighth, Pendleton doubled and Gant tripled, scoring Pendleton.

The 1991 World Series was notable for several grueling contests, with five of its games being decided by one run and three games in extra innings (including the third game, a 12-inning marathon which saw Twins manager Tom Kelly run out of hitters). As they had done in Game 3, the Braves won by scoring a run in their final at-bat. His hustle enabled Lonnie Smith to reach first. That’s odd, because in other sports, titles are important currency.

Smith claimed he did not fall for the decoy, but instead was watching to see if Gladden or Puckett would make the catch. He walked in two runs on bases-loaded walks to Harper and Leius, making four walks in the inning and three consecutive. Despite his earlier struggles, Peña induced a ground ball double play from Mack to record the first two outs. Knoblauch reached on a one-out walk and then went to third on Puckett's single.

The second pitcher to win four titles and never pitch for the Yanks was Jack Morris, the durable right-hander who pitched more innings and won more games than any other pitcher in the 1980s. As he rounded second, Smith momentarily hesitated and as a result of that, he was forced to stop at third.

Kelly sent Aguilera to the plate, although Aguilera did have some success as a hitter and was in fact a converted infielder.

Gladden reached third on a fly ball by Kirby Puckett for the first out, and after Knoblauch stole second Chili Davis was put on intentionally.

Hall of Famer Jim Palmer spread his three championship seasons years apart. That's how it ended, as Jack Morris held the Padres scoreless after the first inning. The other time this happened was in 1987, which was also won by the Twins who defeated the St. Louis Cardinals. In 2010, the teams played a three-game series at the new Target Field, in which the Braves won two out of three games.

I'm down right now, but I'll get over it.".

As he'd done in the eighth, Cox called for an intentional walk to the resurgent Puckett. Greg Gagne and Chili Davis departed following the 1992 season, with Brian Harper leaving at the end of the 1993 season. In the top of the first, the Braves got two baserunners on, but they would eventually be stranded. The Twins go to the seventh game!! Morris' win was his third World Series win in as many starts, as he won Games 1 and 4 of the 1984 Series. ALCS MVP: Kirby Puckett.

Going into the game, this Series had been regarded as one of the best ever. On the fourth pitch of the at bat, with Knoblauch running to avoid a potential double play, Hrbek struck out looking. Then, as part of the new season-long interleague schedule, the Twins played their first regular season series against the Braves at Turner Field in May 2013; the Braves swept the three-game set. Avery went to the showers in favor of the Braves' regular-season closer, Alejandro Peña. After the pitch, the Twins' Al Newman returned the ball to Palermo and the series umpires jogged to the mound to exchange well wishes. The game entered the bottom of the ninth still tied at two.

Jack Buck famously called the home run with the line "And we'll see you tomorrow night!"[24].

It was still 2-1 in the fifth when Larry Herndon homered with two out and a man on, giving the Tigers a 3-2 edge.
The Twins are going to win the World Series!!!

Then Gibson struck again, this time with a three-run blast into the upper deck in right field. Nevertheless, Morris was in a jam as he faced Gant with two runners in scoring position. He was also one of the few starting pitchers in the series on either side with prior experience; seven years earlier, as the ace of the Detroit Tigers, Morris won two games in the 1984 World Series and helped lead Detroit to its most recent world championship.

The 1991 World Series was the second in five seasons in which the home team won all seven games in the Series.
