I missed seeing this one!  But, it doesn't matter. as I couldn't have answered EVEN ONE of the questions!   Cry

I'm preoccupied with The NHL, mostly because a Canadian team has made it to The Cup Finals for the firs time in 37 years!

Doc,

Your answer to Questions 3 (Moe Drabowsky), 4 (Willie Davis), and 7 (Paul Blair) are correct. Question 1 is two people. One of your picks could be right.

Still need answers to 1, 2, 5 and 6.

Close. He struck out 11 of the 20 hitters he faced.

So ... a few clues (or not):

Question 1. We've eliminated Boog. Should be pretty straightforward about the two guys who went back-to-back HRs.

Question 2: What a horrible offensive series by LA. They were shut out in Games 2, 3 and 4. The last run of the Series they scored was in the 3rd inning of Game 1.

Question 5: Willie Davis made those 3 errors in Game 2. The grand total in that game by LA was 6. BONUS Question: Who made the other 3 errors -- a relief pitcher, the 3B, and the RF.

Question 6: Least known of the three O's starters in this Series (Wasn't McNally who started Games 1 and 4, and wasn't Palmer who pitched Game 2). This pitcher was 18 when he threw his first pitch for the O's in 1963. From the Bay Area (San Bruno, CA). Best season was 19-5 with a 2.69 ERA in 1964.

1. Brooks and Frank Robinson?

5. 3B Gilliam and John Kennedy platooned - I'll guess that Kennedy made the error - I didn't care about this World Series, because The Dodgers were in it with their hitting squelching pitching staff, Willie Davis was the full-tme CF - I'm not sure if Ron Fairly played RF, but I think so.  Sweet Lou Johnson (one time-Cub) played LF, if I remember correctly.  So, I'll guess Fairly, relief pitcher?  I'll guess Phil Regan.  he was their ace in 1966.  I don't remember whether he was a good fielder or not, but any player can make an error on any play.  Perranoski was their other big reliever.  But, I'll go with Regan for the error.

6. Wally Bunker?

The clues helped a LOT!

Robb,

1. It was the Robinsons. Lotta people don't think of Brooks as ever being the cleanup hitter in the Orioles order. Like Doc, I woulda guessed Boog Powell.

5. Gilliam made the error at 3B.  Fairly made another playing RF, and it was Perranoski for the 6th and last error of the day. Defensive nightmare. Willie lost one ball in the high LA sky that day. 

6. It was indeed Wally Bunker. He faded fast from a great start to his career. Wally pitched two 1-hitters in his rookie season. Bunker and Dave Boswell were the two top HS pitchers the year they graduated.
