Did it ever come down to the last few games that year!  I still remember Schmidt hitting those two ultra clutch homeruns:  the one that tied the game on Friday night (game 160) that the Phils went on to win and the game on Saturday night (game 161) -- a walkoff.  At the time, I was a freshman in college working for Sears & Roebuck catalog division.  The store closed at 9 pm and I made a beeline to close out the register and to get to my car.  Both nights I heard Kalas call Schmidt's homers on the radio.  What a great memory ... only I wish I had been there!  I was there for game 6 with my Uncle when the Phillies won it all and saw Wilson strikeout against McGraw.    I'm not letting go of those memories!


 Very nice! I was at Pittsburgh when the Pirates beat the Reds to advance to the 79 series


I am Canadian and lived in Nova Scotia in 1979 when the magic of the Expos captured the country.  My very first major league games was a  three game series between the Expos and the Bucs in the Big O in Montreal .  They came oh so close in 1979 (only to be robbed by those Stargel Bucs) - then in December of 1979 the trade for Ron Laflore - it was the piece of the puzzle to put the Expose over the top .  That year while the Phillies and Expos split their series 9 games apiece  but the Expos, heading into September had a winning record over the Phillies - then - the first big showdown was Sept. 16, with less than three weeks to go in the season, the Expos led the Phillies by 2.5 games. The second-place Phillies took two out of three at Veterans Stadium, leaving the Expos with a half-game lead and six games to play. The teams were tied heading into the final series of the season: Expos-Phillies, three games at the Big O, two out of three wins it. The atmosphere was so electric,  more than 57,000 fans packed the park for the first game ( and who knows how many were tuned in to radio and TV - I was one of those glued to the TV for the first two of those games). Mike Schmidt, forever the Expos' biggest nemesis, smacked a homer off Sanderson that provided the margin of victory in a 2-1 game (the Friday night). The Expos looked primed to even the series the next night, only to blow a one-run lead in the ninth. In the 11th, Schmidt broke the hearts of Expos fans across Canada, smoking a two-run shot to give the Phillies the division title - I too remember - it was a heartbreak  and the team everyone thought to be the team of the 80's never recovered.

One run was the difference at Arlington Stadium as the Texas Rangers defeated

the New York Yankees 3 to 2.

 

New York was unable to recover after Texas went ahead in the bottom of the 7th

inning plating one baserunner.  New York had a chance in the 9th but they

came up short. 

 

The winning pitcher was Dave Rajsich(1-0) who allowed 1 run in 1 inning.

Sparky Lyle earned his 1st save.  Ron Guidry(0-1) was given the loss.  He

pitched 8 innings giving up 6 hits and 3 walks.

 

'We didn't get the key hits when we needed them' Dick Howser said. 'We did

what we could, we just didn't pull out the win. What can you say?'

I always had great respect for our divisional rivals back in those days ... and for good reason.

That Pirate team in 1979 was a fun team to watch and the stadium was rockin ... well at least dancing to Sister Sledge.  I remember cheering for the Pirates in that WS. 

Eaglesfly, having been on the receiving end of those defeats, I feel for you.  It is so many years later and the memories are clear and the pain of those things is real (don't show me highlights of the 1993 WS!).  The funny thing was in 1979 the Philadelphia media rode Schmidt hard saying that he was not a clutch hitter, his HRs and RBIs were mostly garbage pickups after the game had already been decided, etc.  Those homeruns shut those critics up ... at least for a few years.  In Philadelphia, we love to blame the superstars.  I don't understand the mentality how can the best player be faulted for losing????

He had the Expos number that year for sure .  In 1984 I moved to Toronto and had seasons tickets to the Blue Jays - 9 rows back of 3rd Base - I was there in 93 when Carter hit that blast off the wild thing . Although they won the world series in 92 and 93 I think my favorite Blue Jay season was 85 when they won the east for the very first time.  Then in 1985 was the year they changed the LCS to best of seven (from a best of five) and wouldn't you know it the jays would go up 3 games to 1 only to loose in 7 . By 1985 the Jays were Canada's team . From 85 thru 93 they had a great team every year .  The 89 Club was also a good one (despite being taken apart by Oakland).  David Steib was an incredible pitcher to see live  (three times taking a no hitter into the 9th).  I just bought a DVD -  Baseball Seasons of the 80's which gave me the bug to start up the 80's - Hope the Replay is exciting as the real season drama

The Pittsburgh Pirates bested the St. Louis Cardinals by a 6 to 2 score at

Bush Stadium.

 

Pittsburgh had 4 runs cross the plate in the 4th inning when they came up with

4 base hits.  The highlight belonged to Ed Ott who deflated the spirits of

the home town crowd when he quieted the crowd by clouting a Grand Slam.

Pittsburgh won despite being out-hit by St. Louis 12 hits to 9. 

 

The win was credited to Bert Blyleven(1-0) who went 8 innings allowing 1 run.

Pete Vuckovich(0-1) ended up with the loss.  He was not very effective,

surrendering 5 runs in 4 and 1/3 innings.

 Hi hope all is well

Yes , as played reply, I may tinker with a line-up as the season gets going to play players with a hot hand or substitute a starter etc .   This was the lineup I found for the Phillies on opening day.  I PH for Carleton in the 5th as the Phillies were down 4-0 .

WEB GEMS- Bot 1st: Gary Matthews robbed Dan Driessen of an extra base hit.

 

25,196 fans watched an exciting game at Riverfront Stadium.  The Cincinnati

Reds topped the Atlanta Braves by the slimmest of margins, 7 to

6.

 

Cincinnati wasted no time and took the lead in the first inning as they scored

3 runs on 3 base hits.  The key at-bat was by Ray Knight who made the crowd

come alive when he doubled which was good for two runs.  Atlanta had a chance

in the 9th but they came up short. 

 

Mike Lacoss(1-0) got credit for the victory, pitching 7 innings and allowing 4

runs. Tom Hume was credited with his 1st save.  The losing pitcher was Larry

McWilliams(0-1).  He was not very effective, surrendering 5 runs in 3

innings.
