Classic MLB 11: Video: KTVU-TV: MLB 1987-8/18-San Francisco Giants @ New York Mets: Full Game

This post was originally posted at The New Democrat on WordPress

A great Giants-Mets matchup late in the 1987 MLB season, because both clubs were still deep in the pennant races. The Giants tied for first place in the NL West and the Mets just a few games behind the St. Louis Cardinals in the NL East. The Mets and Cardinals won four straight NL East divisions titles from 1985-88 and took turns winning those titles. One of the best MLB rivalries in the mid and late 1980s. The Giants woke up from the dead in 1986 under Roger Craig after perhaps being the worst team in MLB in 1985. Bounced back in 1986 and had a winning season for the first time in a while. So 1987 they wanted to prove that they were back and at the very least contend for the NL West. The Mets won the MLB World Series in 1986 and obviously wanted to do that again in 1987.
