The Dodgers win 4 straight to win 1981 World Series

Entering Game 6 of the World Series in the fifth inning, Yankee right-hander George Frazier, relieving starter Tommy John, gives up three go-ahead runs in the team’s 9-2 elimination loss to the Dodgers at Yankee Stadium. The 27 year-old right-hander becomes the first pitcher to lose three games in a best of seven World Series, and the second hurler to drop that many decisions in any Fall Classic, joining White Sox southpaw Lefty Williams, who also lost a trio of games in the best-of-nine series played in 1919.

In the re-entry draft, Dave Winfield is selected by ten of the 26 teams, including the Mets, Yankees, and Braves, the front-running clubs hoping to land the San Diego superstar. The 29 year-old slugging outfielder, who will ink a record ten-year free-agent deal with the Bronx Bombers worth $16 million, is limited to signing a contract with one of the teams that had chosen him, a provision which usually weakens a free agent’s bargaining position.
