The Twins and Dean Chance cruised along with a 2-0 lead at Fenway Park until the bottom of the sixth inning when the wheels came off the Twins bandwagon and the Boston Red Sox scored 5 times and held on for a 5-3 win behind Red Sox starter Jim Lonborg who won his 22nd game of the season. Dean Chance was the loser. The Detroit Tigers who still had a chance coming in ended up splitting with the California Angels and also came up a game short like the Twins and tied for second place. A pennant race for the history books but for everyone but the Boston Red Sox, it was “wait until next year”.
