It is regarded by some as one of the greatest series in postseason history. The Philadelphia Phillies and Houston Astros in the 1980 NLCS went the full five games, with the last four games going into extra innings. The series was filled with drama in every game as Pete Rose crashed into Bruce Bochy to win Game 4 in ten innings 5-3. The Phillies won the series with an 8-7 win in Game 5 in ten innings on an RBI single by Garry Maddox.
