On August 11, 1981 — Ray Searage pitches two-plus innings of hitless relief to be credited with the win in New York’s 4-2 victory over Chicago at Wrigley Field. The southpaw, with his eighth-inning single, gains the distinction of being the only Met player to have compiled a 1.000 batting average (1-for-1) and a 1.000 winning percentage (1-0) while playing with the team.
In Game 7, Willie Stargell goes 3-for 4, including his third home run in the Series, propelling the Pirates to a 4-1 victory over the Orioles. The Bucs overcame a three-games-to-one deficit to win their fifth World Championship in franchise history.

The Cards blow a 7 – 3 lead and lose to Pittsburgh, 8 – 7. Their lead is cut to 2 1/2 games. Pete Alexander blows the lead, but the loss goes to reliever Art Reinhart. Chick Hafey and Jim Bottomley homer for the Cards, but the Bucs answer with the seven hits from the Waners. Paul, leading the National League with a .381 batting average, has four of them.

For the first time in Korean Series history, a game ends on a sacrifice fly. After eight shutout innings (six no-hit frames) by the Doosan Bears’ Dustin Nippert and six blanks by the NC Dinos’ Zach Stewart, both teams receive solid relief pitching. In the bottom of the 11th, though, the Bears load the bases on two singles and a walk, one of the singles coming on a fly lost in the lights. Jae-il Oh then hits a sacrifice fly off Chang-min Lim to bring in Kyoung-min Hur with the winner.
