Philadelphia Phillies vs Houston Astros
October 1980: NLCS Game 5
Pete Rose is at it again, this time in a Phillies uniform, surrounded by such power houses as Mike Schmidt, Greg Luzinski, and Gary Maddox. There was only one obstacle to winning this LCS: Nolan Ryan of the Houston Astros. With the series tied at 2 each, the bookies were betting on the Astros to win game 5 and advance to the World Series. Extra bonus: Howard Cosell behind the mic.
