Game 2: at Dodgers 7, Phillies 1Game 3: Dodgers 6, at Phillies 5Game 4: Dodgers 4, at Phillies 1MVP: Dusty Baker (.357, 2 homers, 8 RBIs)Recap: The ninth inning of Game 3 was one for the ages. The Phillies had a 5-3 lead and seemed assured of taking a 2-1 series lead with Gene Garber on the mound. He retired the first two hitters, but pinch-hitter Vic Davalillo, noticing the infield playing well back, beat out a drag bunt to the right side. Pinch-hitter Manny Mota, behind in the count 0-2, hit a deep fly to left that Greg Luzinski misplayed for an error. He threw to second to try to get Mota, but the throw skipped away, allowing Davalillo to score and Mota to move to third. Davey Lopes followed with a hard-hit grounder to third that caromed off Mike Schmidt right to shortstop Larry Bowa, who gunned the ball to first too late. Mota scored the tying run. Garber attempted to pick Lopes off first and threw the ball away, sending Lopes to second. Bill Russell then singled Lopes home. Dodgers reliever Mike Garman retired the side in the bottom of the ninth. It was the first time since Game 4 of the 1947 World Series that the Dodgers won a postseason game when trailing going into the ninth inning. Tommy John shut down the Phillies in Game 4 during a constant rain. headtopics.com

I almost fell down between second and third.” The Expos got two two-out walks in the bottom of the ninth off of Fernando Valenzuela, but Bob Welch came on to get the final out and send the Dodgers to the World Series. headtopics.com

Cody Bellinger delivers Dodgers to historic win over rival Giants in NLDS Game 5Finally, after months of hunting the Giants, the Dodgers slayed them with a 2-1 win to advance to the National League Championship Series for the fifth time in six years. It’s a bit obtuse to say they slayed it. Even game til nearly the end, then first base ump decides to make it all about him & ruin an historical series. Don’t people down there know that the word is “slew”? A major league ump should not end a season on a more than doubtful call - he took away the change for the Dodgers to finish the game in style and record a correct out!
