About This File

The 1978 season featured a constant battle for first place in the AL East between the Red Sox and Yankees. On July 19, 1978, the Yankees were in 4th place, 14 games behind the Red Sox.

On October 1, 1978, the final day of the regular season, the Red Sox won and the Yankees lost, making them tied for first place with identical 99-63 records.

On October 2, 1978, the two clubs met in a one game playoff. Cy Young Award winner Ron Guidry notched his 25th victory of the season and Bucky Dent secured his place in Yankees history by hitting a 3-run home run over the Green Monster.

The 5-4 game is considered by many as one of the most exciting games in Major League history.
