Metrodome Memory: Black Jack Morris deals Twins to second World Series championship

Posted: Updated:

Four years after capturing their first ever World Series title, the Twins made a return appearance defeating the Atlanta Braves in seven games in what some call the greatest championship series in history.

Five of the seven games were decided by a single run with three games needing extra innings to decide the winner. Jack Morris pitched all 10 innings in the final game of the series throwing 126 pitches and refused to come out of the game. Gene Larkin's single scored Dan Gladden from third as the Twins scored the only run of the game.

As they did in 1987, the Twins won all four home games in the series proving there was no place like Dome.
