Royals v. Mets: Too Bad Somebody Had To Win

Here's the astonishingly terrible call in '85 that cost the Cards the series. They fell apart after that call--for the rest of game 6 and all of game 7.
This in '87 was also unfortunate, though perhaps less consequential. The Cards had already had to struggle hard against that absurd Minnesota stadium with the back-lighting and the baseball-colored ceiling... This call just seemed like the icing on the...cake or whatever.
But I'm not bitter...

Bad calls happen in sports. Officiating is an approximate business. You've got to accept that going in.  But damn, that Denkinger call is hard to forget...
