on this day - Blue Monday

on this day in 1981, the Dodgers win game five of the NLCS 2-1 to knock out the Montreal Expos. Rick Monday of the Dodgers hit the game winning home run in the top of the 9th inning to put L.A. in front. Bob Welch got the final three outs in the Expos half of the 9th to wrap up the win. Expos fans still remember this game as "Blue Monday." the Dodgers eventually beat the Yankees in six games to win the world series.
