Bake McBride Comes Through

1980 World Series: Game One
Kansas City Royals @ Philadelphia Phillies
Veteran's Stadium
October 14, 1980
The first game of the 1980 World Series took place 35 years ago today.  The Phillies held off a 9th inning rally by Kansas City to win 7 - 6.  This win was largely due to Bake McBride.  In the third inning, with Pete Rose and Mike Schmidt on base, Shake N' Bake hit a three run homer off of Dennis Leonard to give the Phillies the lead.
