An Old Classic

Philadelphia 21

Chicago 9
4th

If you are thinking Eagles and Bears you would be wrong. That was the Phillies and Cubs 31 years ago today. The Phillies had leads of 7-0, 15-6 and 21-9 but the Cubs tied it at 22 and then lost it in the 10th by a final score of 23-22. Eleven home runs were hit, three by Dave Kingman. If you think Harry Caray must have been going nuts with such a disappointing loss that day, you would be wrong. The White Sox beat the A's 5-1.
