Twenty-six years ago today at Wrigley Field, the Cubs and Phillies played the second-highest scoring game in major league history. The Cubs came from 7-0, 15-6 and 21-9 deficits to tie the game 22-22, only to lose on a Mike Schmidt homer off Bruce Sutter in the 10th.
Incidentally, that loss dropped that Cub team to 16-16, seven games out of first place, in fourth. While that 1979 team never did make it to first place, they did get to 54-42 on July 27, half a game out, before fading and finishing 80-82, 18 games behind the Pirates.
