Defying the odds
With Toledo and Philadelphia posting over 100 wins this season it seemed only logical that you would probably see one or both of them in the World Series. Nobody expected the outcome that happened.. In 4 games Philly went down to the least likely team of Montreal in the AL and in the NL Louisville redeemed themselves from having a rough season to defeat Toledo in 7 games.. Now Montreal and Louisville meet in the World Series.. Montreal, again is the under dog going into what feels like an impossible series to finally bring the AL a Championship. Louisville is fighting to keep their undefeated World Series magic alive..
Mark Post wins his 4th straight game in the playoffs. Louisville is the only team to score off Post this entire post season. Erv Hines drove in 4 runs for Montreal while Brett Russell drove in 3 for Louisville.
Game 2 we have Luther Alexander (Mon) vs. Erick Shannon (Lou)
