Saturday, June 23, 1984 - Cubs 12, St. Louis Cardinals
11 (Complete Original NBC Game of the Week Broadcast, Bob Costas and Tony
Kubek) - In one of the most memorable regular-season games of the
1980s - and one of the greatest days in Ryne Sandberg's MVP season - the
Cubs came back from repeated deficits, and after game-tying Home Runs by
Sandberg in both the ninth and tenth innings, the home fans celebrate a
thrilling 11-inning victory.
1984 NLCS Game 1, October 2, 1984 - Cubs 13, San Diego
Padres 0 (Complete Original ABC Sports Game Broadcast, Don Drysdale, Earl
Weaver and Reggie Jackson) - In their first Post-Season game in
39 years, Cy Young award winner Rick Sutcliffe pitches a gem and hits a
home run, and the Cubs thrash the San Diego Padres 13-0 to thrill the sun-soaked
Wrigley Field faithful.
Saturday, August 1, 1987 - Cubs 5, Philadelphia Phillies
3 (Complete Original WGN Game Broadcast, Harry Caray and Steve Stone)
- Step back in time with this classic 1980s Harry Caray broadcast! Andre
Dawson single-handedly lifts his last-place Cubs to a victory over the
Phillies with three homers and all five RBI on a glorious summer afternoon
on the North Side, during Andre's MVP season.
1989 NLCS Game 2, Thursday, October 5, 1989 - Cubs
9, San Francisco Giants 5 (Complete Original NBC Game Broadcast, Bob Costas
and Tom Seaver) - After Will Clark helped destroy the Cubs in Game
1, Mark Grace returned the favor in this Wrigley night game classic. With
a single, two doubles, and four RBI, the sophomore first baseman launched
an NLCS assault that was truly astounding.
Wednesday, May 6, 1998 - Cubs 2, Houston Astros 0 (Complete
Original WGN Game Broadcast, Chip Caray and Steve Stone) - In one
of the most dominating pitching performances in the history of baseball,
rookie Kerry Wood struck out 20 batters, walked none, and gave up only
a third inning single to shortstop Ricky Gutierrez. A Wednesday afternoon
game in blustery weather, Wrigley Field was less than half full that day,
and the television audience was weekday-afternoon small, making this a
broadcast that only a select few witnessed live!
Sunday, September 13, 1998 - Cubs 11, Milwaukee Brewers
10 (Complete Original WGN Game Broadcast, Chip Caray and Steve Stone)
- Less than a week after Mark McGwire smashed through the single-season
Home Run record, Sammy Sosa was poised at the brink. With a jam-packed
Sunday afternoon crowd enjoying a festive atmosphere like you've never
seen, Sammy smashes homer #61 in the fifth, and #62 onto Waveland Avenue
as part of a dramatic 9th inning comeback, before Mark Grace sends the
fans home in a frenzy with a 10th-inning walk-off homer into the right-field
bleachers to seal victory for the wildcard-leading Cubbies.
Saturday, August 7, 2004 - Cubs 8, San Francisco Giants
4 (Complete Original FOX Game Broadcast, Thom Brennaman and Steve Lyons)

into San Francisco's Pac Bell Park and records career victory #300.
Wednesday, June 1, 2005 - Cubs 9, L.A. Dodgers 5 (Complete
Original FOX Sports West 2 Game Broadcast, Vin Scully) - Settle
in with baseball's all-time greatest broadcaster as he calls a remarkable
performance by red-hot Derrek Lee, who goes 5-for-5 in a big Cubs win.
