What It Was Like to Be a Kid During Darren Daulton's Phillies Peak

Perhaps no image better represented those lean times than Ray Lankford freight-training Darren Daulton on a Sunday afternoon at Busch Stadium for a walk-off win in April 1991.

Even though I loved them, I just assumed that the Phillies basically amounted to extras in a movie that starred teams like the Pirates, Reds, and Braves.

Losing to the Cardinals by three runs in the eighth and facing Lee Smith, one of the dominant closers of the era?

I think having Dutch on the team made it a little easier for my mom to stomach a summer spent watching two-and-a-half hours of baseball every night.

In Game 4 of the 1993 World Series, Daulton connected on a hanging Al Leiter slider to put the Phillies back up 9-7.
