Jackson's removal and ensuing dugout confrontation with Martin during the Saturday afternoon game were captured by national-television cameras, and Reggie's spirits plunged.
New York, getting its second complete-game performance of the Series from Mike Torrez (an April acquisition from Oakland), rode Jackson's five RBIs to a clinching 8-4 triumph that earned the Yankees their first World Series crown since 1962 and 21st overall.
