Forty-three teams have held a 3-1 lead in the World Series, and 37 of those teams went on to win the championship. The six that could not close the deal?
Can the Yankees, no strangers to choking in the post-season, become #7?
Since 1969, of the 16 times a team has held a 3-1 lead in the World Series, only three times has the series even gone to a Game 7 -- no matter who won.
Jim Salisbury, Philadelphia Inquirer:
The Phillies had 12 winning streaks of three or more games this season.If the Phillies win tonight, there will be a World Series Game 6 for the first time since 2003. The five World Series since then have been sweeps or gone five games.
Do they have one more in them?
