  • This Day in Dodgers HistoryIn 1941 usually dependable Dodgers catcher Mickey Owen dropped a two-out third-strike to Tommy Henrich in the ninth inning of Game Four of the World Series to give the Yanks an opportunity to come-from-behind. New York would then immediately rally to win the game, 7-4, and take a 3-1 World Series lead. In 1947 Dodger outfielder Al Gionfriddo robbed Joe Dimaggio of an extra base hit and several RBI's when he made a leaping grab near the left field bullpen during Game 6 of the World Series.  Go here to watch a highlight reel of the play. In 1980 the Dodgers came back to defeat the Astros, 4-3, to sweep a season-ending, three-game series and force a one-game playoff with the Astros for the National League Western Division title.  Ron Cey had hit a two-run stunner in the 8th inning to help win the game.  Unfortunately, the Dodgers would lose that one-game playoff, 7-1, the next day.
