CAN PHILS-ASTROS WS LIVE UP TO 1980 CLASSIC NLCS SERIES?

Mike Schmidt and friends knocked off Houston in the 1980 NLCS on the way to beating KC in the World Series, the Phils’ first title

Houston is 1-3 in previous trips to the World Series, while the Phillies are 2-5 with their last championship coming in 2008.

This isn’t the first postseason meeting between the two franchises — back when the Astros were a National League team, Philly and Houston met in the 1980 NLCS.

In what was a five-game maximum, the Phillies needed all five games to barely outlast the Astros in a series regarded as a classic.

The Phils went on to win their first-ever World Series crown that same year, and Philly fans can only hope that karma repeats itself in this latest matchup against the Astros.
