Loser League: Division Series

It's playoff time for the Loser League and remember it will be loser advances. There's only one Losertober!

 

1979 Oakland A's def. 1988 Baltimore Orioles 3 games to 0

 

Game 1: A'S 24, Orioles 4

Game 2: A'S 11, Orioles 3

Game 3: A's 7, ORIOLES 3

 

That Game 1 score is not a misprint as this series reminds you why Baltimore lost 21 games to start the 1988 season. Baltimore's team ERA for the series was 14.40 as the A's hit .374 as a team. No word yet if Cal Ripken will request to pull himself out of the line up for the next series.

 

1979 Toronto Blue Jays def. 1982 Minnesota Twins 3 games to 1

 

Game 1: TWINS 6, Blue Jays 1

Game 2: Blue Jays 3, TWINS 0

Game 3: BLUE JAYS 7, Twins 6

Game 4: BLUE JAYS 5, Twins 4

 

Do you believe in miracles, eh? The '79 Blue Jays were the only team to top 100 losses in the Loser League and were the runaway favorite to take the title entering the postseason but they shock the world but beating the '82 Twins. The Jays mounted a five run 8th inning comeback in the deciding Game 4 to send the Twins to the Loser Championship Series and many of their players to suicide.

 

1998 Florida Marlins def. 1981 Chicago Cubs 3 games to 2

 

Game 1: Marlins 4, CUBS 1

Game 2: CUBS 10, Marlins 6

Game 3: MARLINS 5, Cubs 4 12 innings

Game 4: Cubs 5, MARLINS 1

Game 5: Marlins 6, CUBS 4

 

Cubs' fans this might be your year! No team was happier that two months of the 1981 season was wiped out by a player's strike than the Cubs and it almost seems cruel to make them keep playing. I don't know if Bartman stole a foul ball from Steve Henderson in the deciding game.

 

1981 San Diego Padres def. 1988 Atlanta Braves 3 games to 2

 

Game 1: Braves 4, PADRES 2

Game 2: Braves 6, PADRES 4 11 innings

Game 3: Padres 8, BRAVES 3

Game 4: Padres 4, BRAVES 2

Game 5: PADRES 9, Braves 8 18 innings

 

Go Braves! After dropping two at home the Padres make a remarkable comeback and in Game 5 defeated the Braves in an 18 inning classic or really 6 hours and 26 minutes of torture if you had watch these two teams play. The game ended on an Ozzie Smith RBI single off rookie Tom Glavine who was forced into the game as a pinch hitter and remained in the game to pitch after the Braves bench and bullpen had been used up. Here's the boxscore:
