1980 NLCS Gm5: Phillies advance to the World Series
The 1980 Philadelphia Phillies season was a season in American baseball. The team finished with a regular-season record of 91 wins and 71 losses, which was good enough to regain the National League East title by just one game over the Montreal Expos. The Phillies went on to defeat the Houston Astros in the NLCS to gain their first NL title since 1950, then defeated the Kansas City Royals to win their first-ever World Series Championship, in the team's 98th season. The 1980 Phillies were known as "The Cardiac Kids" because of the many close games that were almost blown.
