Jack Morris

 

Minnesota Twins starter Jack Morris pitches all 10-innings in Game 7 of their 1-0 World Series clinching thriller. Gene Larkin provided the game winning hit and Dan Gladden was the winning run in what is often called the greatest pitching performance in World Series history. Morris started 3 games going 2-0 with a 1.17 ERA and was voted MVP of the Series.
