Box score of the week (FINAL ONE OF 2011)

It's World Series time, so let's check out Game 1 of the 1966 Fall Classic featuring the Baltimore Orioles and Los Angeles Dodgers.


In this game, Orioles relief pitcher Moe Drabowsky tied a World Series single game record by striking out six consecutive batters. He tied the record set in 1919 by Cincinnati Reds starting pitcher Hod Eller. However, Eller's record was set against the infamous Chicago White Sox team (aka Black Sox) who conspired with gamblers to deliberately lose the series. So we could make the argument that Drabowsky's record is more legit.
