See what Andrew Salciuans played in The Audio Vault today. Every day on The Anthony Gargano Show, Andrew Salciunas grabs some audio that is relevant to the day, to play for us. Only today, Anthony Gagrano was out, so Andrew slid into the host Chair. Which meant it was Ray “Dickie” Dunn in the producer’s chair. It was Ray’s chance to delve into the Vault to pull out the Audio of his choice. And his choice was to look back at a Phillies game that took place on this day in history. Because on May 17th, 1979, the Phillies played quite a special game against the Cubs. And by special, we mean a whole lot of runs. the final was 23-22 Phillies. A score that feels more like a Football score than a Baseball one.
11 total home runs. Including two by Mike Schmidt. One in the first inning, and then another in the 10th to win it for the Phillies. The Phillies scored 7 in the first, and the Cubs followed that up with 6 of their own. Two innings later in the 3rd, the Phillies tacked on another 8. And then 2 more in the 4th, followed by 4 in the 5th. but the Cubs kept up. They scored 3 in the 4th, then 7 in the 5th.
And in honor of that wild game, Ray played some of the best moments from that game in today’s Audio Vault. The many, MANY, Home Runs, the back-and-fourth run scoring. Larry Bowa calling out the Phillies pitcher Randy Lercvh who complained about never getting run support and then coughing up an early 7-run lead. Mike Schmidt winning it in extra innings, and more. Follow along with Andrew and Ray as they replay the best moments from the Phillies and Cubs wild 23-22 game.
