1963 ALCS - GAME 7 - "Close-Shave by Barber"

Game 7
Phil Regan vs Steve Barber
Orioles 1, Tigers 0
After two games of extra innings both bullpens were hurting. This put a lot of pressure on the starters. A sacrifice fly in the bottom of the 1st by Boog Powell scored Luis Aparicio. Both starters were up for the pressure. Phil Regan went 7 1/3 innings  giving way to Willie Smith and then Bob Anderson. Barber went the distance allowed no late game heroics and ended Al Kaline's 7 game hitting streak allowed only 5 hits and struck out 8. Baltimore's pitching ace came through to advance them to the World Series. It was fitting game 7 was a pitching gem ending in a 1-0 shutout.
