Game 5, World Series
Game 5 of the 1929 World Series turned into another very historic game in MLB history. Pat Malone was cruising along with a 2-run lead going into the ninth when disaster struck. Mule Haas who had a big 3-run home run in Game 4 did the damage again, hitting a 2-run home run to tie the game at 2-2. With 2 outs, Al Simmons doubled, Jimmy Foxx was intentionally walked, but Bing Miller drove in the winning run with a single to give the A’s a 3-2 walk-off victory to secure the 1929 World Series championship. The game was played at Shibe Park in Philadelphia.
