Why the Phillies won: Steve Carlton won Game 2, despite allowing four runs and 16 baserunners in eight IP, but pitched better to win Game 6.

Why the Royals lost: Pitching in all six games, Dan Quisenberry blew saves and lost Games 2 and 5.

Memorable moment: Down 5-1 in Game 4, Phillies reliever Dickie Noles brushed back George Brett, who'd flirted with .400 during the season. Mike Schmidt refers to it as "the greatest brushback in WS history."

Key stat: 1.176, Schmidt's OPS in the series. The Phillies' third baseman ripped a pair of homers, scored the winning run in Game 5, and drove in the winning scores in Game 6.
