Though they lost a season-ending playoff game to the Houston Astros, 7-1, this season will be remembered for the thrilling comeback to tie the Astros at the end of the season. The Dodgers were three games back going into the final set in L.A. The Dodgers won all three by scores of 3-2, 2-1, and 4-3 consecutively, with outstanding offensive heroics by Joe Ferguson and Ron Cey. Don Sutton saved the finale in a rare relief appearance - a signature moment and fitting tribute to his longevity and excellence as a Dodger, before being traded to Houston in 1981.
