The critical instant: Carlton Fisk slams his game-winning homer in the 12th.

The drama begins with Fred Lynn's three-run drive in the first.

Ken Griffey retaliates in the fifth with his two-run triple.

Lynn's gallant leap for the ball fails; he crashes and collapses.

Cesar Geronimo rounds third after his eight-inning homer makes it 6-3

Denny Doyle's rash dash home in the ninth; he's out.

It is Cesar who buries Luis Tiant; he is taken out.

Bernie Carbo rips the improbable eighth-inning pinch home run, his second of the Series, that ties the game 6-6.

All of which leads to the mob scene for Fisk.
