- Your daily dose of Phillies history

Today in Phillies History for October 23rd

It Happened Today in:

1993: For only the second time in history, a World Series ends with a come-from-behind homer. With a 6-5 lead, 2 runners on and 1 out, Joe Carter connects with Mitch Williams' 2-2 pitch for a 3-run homer, giving the Blue Jays the first World Series victory for a team from Canada.
2008: Brett Myers allowed 3 early runs, opening the way for a Tampa Bay victory in Game 2 of the 2008 World Series. Eric Bruntlett hit a pinch-hit home run, the first by a Phillie in a World Series.
2010: The Phillies knocked out San Francisco starter Johnathan Sanchez in the third inning, but couldn't get anything going against the Giants' bullpen. Trailing 3-2 in the ninth with two runners on, Ryan Howard looks at a 3-2 slider from Brian Wilson that's called a strike, and the Phillies are eliminated from the NLCS in game 6.

Phillies Transactions on This Day:

2012: Lost David Herndon off waivers to Toronto.
