'81: Semi-Finals - Seltzer at Mudville Game 7
Two pretty evenly matched teams take it all the way to Game 7.
Reuss v. Carlton
In the regular season Reuss went 20-9, 2.82 while Carlton was 18-11, 2.92 and gave up a whopping 21 HR (compared to 9 “real”)
Nine take a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the 1st with back-to-back doubles to start the game by Brett and Bell
Lokies answer with 2 in the 5th and a single in the 6th to lead 3-1
This is where I expected the Nine’s offense to just quit, but I’m a glass is half empty kinda guy. :)
The Nine plate 3 big runs, highlighted by a 2-run Leon Durham 3B.
Into the 7th, the Lokies get Remy on base and I figured why have a great bullpen and not use it. So Fingers comes in and closes out the 7th without any damage.
He also pitches a perfect 8th with the Nine clinging to their 4-3 lead.
The wheels fall off for the Lokies and Reuss in the bottom of the 8th as the Nine put up a huge 4-run inning and take a commanding 8-3 lead.
That’s where it stays as Gossage comes in and allows a BB, but no runs.
WP: S. Carlton (1-1)
LP: J. Reuss (1-1)
Durham 2 hits, 3B, 2 RS, 3 RBI
Bell 3-3, 3 2B, BB, 2 RS, RBI
Brett 2 hits, 2B, 3B, 2 RS
Seltzer deserved better. They had a great regular season and had a series leads of 2 games to none and 3 games to 1, but couldn’t close it out.

It was correct on my end. If this doesn't work. double click on LP1 lineup . It should bring it up.
