I just watched an abbreviated version of Game 5 of the 1986 American League Championship Series on ESPN Classic. What memories; the two-run homers in the 9th by Don Baylor and Dave Henderson; the throw by Dewey Evans that didn't quite nail the tying run at the plate in the bottom of the 9th for the Angels; the great catch in the bottom of the 10th by Jim Rice to kill a California rally and finally the sacrifice fly by Henderson that brought the winning run home.

Of course, the Sox went on to win games 6 and 7 back at Fenway to set up the World Series with the Mets. And we all remember what happened there...
