. . . where the 1970s live forever!

Wrecking the Phillies' strategy, Manny Trillo smashed a three-run homer in the 11th inning to carry the Cubs to a 5-2 victory. Bill Madlock led off the frame with a single. After Jerry Morales bounced out, moving Madlock to second, the Phillies passed Pete LaCock intentionally to get at Trillo, who upset the applecart by connecting for his homer off Ron Reed.
