Phillies Hall-of-Famer Mike Schmidt’s two-run single in the third inning would prove to be the game-winner. After knocking in a World Series total of seven runs with two homers and a .381 average, Schmidt would be named Series MVP. In 2008, 28 years later, the Phillies would win their second World Championship.
