ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) – Wednesday marks 30 years since one of the best World Series finishes of all time, and the Minnesota Twins were crowned champions.

On October 27, 1991 Jack Morris pitched a complete game shutout, winning Game 7, 1-0. John Smoltz was on the mound for the Braves. The Twins defeated Atlanta 4-3 to win the team’s third World Series, second in Minnesota.

Jack Morris was named World Series MVP.

Kirby Puckett’s extra-inning walk-off home run in Game 6 was another key moment in this series, one of the most memorable in Twins history.
