This year marks the 20th anniversary of the 1993 Philadelphia Phillies going from worst to first and winning the National League pennant. All season long we will take a look back at each game of the 1993 season.
Last Game: Padres 2, Phillies 1
Curt Schilling pitched a complete game shutout and struck out nine batters in the process as the Phillies opened up a home series against the Los Angeles Dodgers with a 2-0 victory.
Schilling tossed 134 pitches and scattered five hits before 21,702 at Veterans Stadium. He was locked in early, striking out the first three batters of the game, including prized rookie catcher Mike Piazza to end the inning. With Schilling dealing on the mound the offense would not need much to pick up the win. Dave Hollins led off the bottom of the fourth inning with a solo home run and Milt Thompson later allowed Darren Daulton to score on a groundout. Those two runs would be more than enough for the win, as Schilling continued to stiffle the Dodgers.
With the win the Phillies improed to 11-4 and bounced back from a low-scoring loss to the San Diego Padres the day before.
