October 11, 1975 At Fenway Park (Photo) Luis Tiant pitching to Pete Rose in the 1975 World Series. Luis Tiant and Don Gullett were locked in a scoreless pitching duel until the seventh inning. Tiant led off with a single and later scored Boston’s first run on a single by Carl Yastrzemski. Then the floodgates opened: Reds reliever Clay Carroll walked Carlton Fisk to force in a run, Rico Petrocelli slapped a two-run single, Rick Burleson had an RBI single, and Cecil Cooper ended the scoring with a sacrifice fly. Tiant finished with a five-hitter against a team that had scored an MLB high 840 runs during the regular season.
