This Date in Dodger History - Mike Scioscia and Kirk Gibson Homeruns

On October 9, 1988, the New York Mets hosted the Dodgers in Game 4 of the 1988 NLCS. Trailing 4-2 in the top of the ninth with John Shelby on first, Mike Scioscia pulled a Dwight Gooden pitch over the right field fence for a 2-run game tying homerun. The game went extra innings and in the top of the twelfth, Kirk Gibson hit a homerun to give the Dodgers a 5-4 lead. Even though he was the starting pitcher the day before in Game 3, Orel Hersisher came in to pitch the bottom of the twelfth and got the save! The win tied the series at two games a piece. Check out the video below.


True to the Blue!
