1971 Hall of Fame Game
Back-to-back singles scored Foster and Chambliss. The Cubs finally recorded an out when Frank Baker popped out to third. Newman then committed his second error of the inning, allowing John Lowenstein to reach and Gomer Hodge to score. Kurt Bevacqua singled to score Roy Fosse, and Bill Bonham relieved Newman.
After Ted Colbert struck out, Clark hit a three-run home run to cap the Indians’ rally.
A single and two walks loaded the bases for the Cubs in the seventh inning, and Chris Cannizzaro’s sacrifice fly scored Johnny Callison from third base. Indians reliever Mark Ballinger walked Al Spangler to reload the bases, and a Hector Torres single scored Chicago’s final two runs of the inning.
The Indians picked up three more in the eighth when Clark singled, Foster reached on an error and Chambliss walked to load the bases. Clark was forced out at home on the next play, but Ken Suarez drew a walk to force Foster home. A single by Frank Baker scored Chambliss and Hodge.
Chicago narrowed Cleveland’s lead when Cannizzaro homered off of Rick Austin in the bottom of the ninth, but that was the closest the Cubs would come, as Austin was able to retire the next two batters to secure the Cleveland win.
