Buckner Costs Sox The Series

On Oct. 25, 1986, Buckner's mistake costs Red Sox the World Series.

On this day in 1986, the famous Bill Buckner error took place in Game 6 of the World Series. 

The Red Sox led 5-3 in the bottom of the tenth inning and were on their way to winning the World Series trophy. 

But a Mets rally kept the game alive. 

After a wild pitch, Bill Buckner misplayed a routine ground ball and allowed the Mets to steal the game. 

New Work would take the series in seven games.
