EDIT
1978 NLCS, Game 4: Phillies at Dodgers
October 7, 1978: 1978 NLCS, Game 4: Philadelphia Phillies 3 at Los Angeles Dodgers 4, F/10 -- These two teams had met the year before in the NLCS, and the LA won the Series, 3-1. Now Philadelphia found themselves in the same spot, backs against the wall, facing elimination in Game 4. The game see-sawed through nine innings, with the Dodgers striking first in the 2nd inning on a Ron Cey double and a Dusty Baker RBI. "The Bull," Greg Luzinski, answered with a two-run homer in the next inning, putting the Phillies ahead, 2-1. Cey hit a solo shot in the 4th, tying the game and Steve Garvey launched his fourth home run of the series in the 6th inning, giving the Dodgers a 3-2 lead. Philly got that run right back, tying it 3-3 on Bake McBride's homer in the 7th… and so it stayed, into the 10th inning. Phillies closer Tug McGraw, in his second inning of work, retired the first two batters, and then surrendered a walk to Cey. Baker lifted a fly to center, where Garry Maddox -- nicknamed "The Secretary of Defense" -- seemed to lose the ball, first starting back, then charging forward, with the ball finally glancing off his glove, leaving Cey on second and Baker on first. The next batter, Bill Russell, lined a base hit to center. Maddox charged, knowing he needed to keep the runner on second from scoring. In his aggressive play, the ball skipped past the eight-time Gold Glove winner, and Cey skipped across with the winning run, an ironic end to the Phillies' season.moreless
