Pennant hopes in San Francisco
That 1962 team was something else. Five Hall of Famers. Won the pennant with a 4-run rally in the 9th of the 165th game of the year. Lost the World Series with runners at 2nd and 3rd in the 9th inning of a 1-0 seventh game.Mays, Cepeda, McCovey, Marichal, Perry, Haller, Davenport, Felipe and Matty, Billy Pierce, Stu Miller, Harvey Kuenn, Billy O'Dell, Jose Pagan, Ed Bailey, Jack Sanford, Chuck Hiller, McCormick, Bolin...a great team.
All the bad luck from 1962, 1971, 1987, 1989, 1997, 2000, 2002 and 2003 finally went away in 2010 and 2012.
