1984 NLCS, Game 5: Cubs @ Padres

MLB Vault
Chicago Cubs 3 at Padres 6, F — It was the decisive Game 5 of the National League Championship Series. The Cubs had posted the NL’s best record that season, and they had stormed out to a 2-0 series lead. But because of an old Major League Baseball rule at that time, the Padres had the home-field advantage and would play the final three games in San Diego because then the advantage simply shifted every other year. So the Padres had proceeded to win the next two at home, and now there was a full house to watch this final act that would send someone completely different into a Fall Classic.
