GAME 6

It was the thriller by which those of the future must be measured, with the Red Sox first lifted up, then dashed down and finally made victors by two storybook home runs

The critical instant: Carlton Fisk slams his game-winning homer in the 12th.

This is an article from the Nov. 3, 1975 issue

The drama begins with Fred Lynn's three-run drive in the first.

Ken Griffey retaliates in the fifth with his two-run triple.

Lynn's gallant leap for the ball fails; he crashes and collapses.

Cesar Geronimo rounds third after his eight-inning homer makes it 6-3

Denny Doyle's rash dash home in the ninth; he's out.

It is Cesar who buries Luis Tiant; he is taken out.

Bernie Carbo rips the improbable eighth-inning pinch home run, his second of the Series, that ties the game 6-6.

All of which leads to the mob scene for Fisk.
