Episode Summary

EDIT
May 17, 1979: Philadelphia Phillies 23 at Chicago Cubs 22, F/10 -- The Windy City was certainly living up to its name on this mid-May afternoon at Wrigley. The gusty forces blowing through the friendly confines of the quaint old park insured that, as shortstop Larry Bowa recalled, "no lead was safe." So leaving the ballpark or shutting off the television after the Phillies jumped out to a 7-0 lead in the top of the first was a grave mistake. The Cubs came right back with six in the bottom half of the inning, and baseball's second-most offensive game was underway. Eleven home runs, 50 hits and 97 total bases... and the Cubs and Phillies still needed a 10th inning to settle the score. When the dust from the players circling the bases finally settled, the Phils dragged their tired bodies out of Wrigley Field with a 23-22 win. The game had a symmetry to it: Mike Schmidt started it all, driving in the first runs with a three run shot in the first; then closing it out with the game-winning RBI in the 10th. Dave "King Kong" Kingman smacked three homers in the loss.moreless
