Philly Sports Classics

Your Philly Sports Classic for the month of APRIL 2016 on CSN and TCN Philadelphia!

From October 19th, 1980 – MLB World Series Game 5: PHILLIES vs. Kansas City

A scoreless game until the fourth, when Mike Schmidt hit a two-run bomb to right-center.  By the sixth, K.C. was in front 3–2.  Then in the pivotal ninth, Schmidt led off the inning with a single, and Del Unser drove him home all the way from first with a double down the right-field line. After a bunt moved Unser to third, Manny Trillo drove in the go-ahead run with a line shot that ricocheted off the Royals’ pitcher for an infield hit.  And finally, in the bottom of the ninth after the Royals loaded the bases with two out, Tug McGraw silenced the crowd by striking out Royals’ Jose Cardenal with a high fastball to end the game.  Phillies go up 3 games to 2 and eventually take the World Series!
