MLB: Teams that Have Come Back to Win the World Series After Being Down 3-2

The 1985 Kansas City Royals Came Back To Win The World Series After Being Down 3-2

The 1985 Kansas City Royals Came Back To Win The World Series After Being Down 3-2

The Kansas City Royals‘ backs are up against the wall. They’re returning home, down to the San Francisco Giants 3-2 in the 2014 World Series.

Well, 21 times a team in such a position, including the 1985 Royals, has come back to win it all. Of those 21 teams, 12, again including the ’85 Royals, had home field advantage. In other words, they won the last two games at home (and KC also won the last game in St. Louis – they actually were down 3-1).

And in other words, it ain’t over till it’s over.

The last time an underdog came back from 3-2 to win the final two games on the road was in 1979, when the Pittsburgh Pirates stole the title from the Baltimore Orioles.

One more note: We know the New York Yankees and St. Louis Cardinals have the most World Series titles – the Yanks far ahead – so naturally they are both well represented below with 12 of the 21 comebacks involving either or both teams.

But here is one area where the Cardinals excel over the Yankees. The Cards have come back from down three games to two an amazing five times (to the Yankees two).

In other words, five of the Cardinals 12 championships (41.6 percent) were born of this scenario. That’s one turnaround away from half. Wow.

NFL: Top 20 Players with the Most Receiving Touchdowns on Monday Night Football

Jerry Rice Even Had A Monday Night Football Touchdown With The Seattle Seahawks

Jerry Rice Even Had A Monday Night Football Touchdown With The Seattle Seahawks

Here’s another record for Jerry Rice, one that won’t have any viers for some time, if ever.

Rice has 34 receiving touchdowns on Monday Night Football, 13 more than Terrell Owens in second and 24 more than the first active player on the list, 34-year old Anquan Boldin.

There is one other active present, and he is on a Monday night tear (thanks in part to his consistently good team that gets scheduled for MNF and also his future Hall of Fame QB, Drew Brees). It’s tight end Jimmy Graham who already has eight MNF touchdowns through six games in just four-and-a-half seasons.

Not bad, but can he catch Rice? Nah.

Speaking of tight ends, the best TE scorer on Monday Night Football was Joe Montana‘s (and Steve Young‘s) Brent Jones. He’s tied with Boldin at 10.
