1985 NLCS, Games 5 and 6: Cardinals vs. Dodgers

The 1985 NLCS was one to forget for Dodgers reliever Tom Niedenfuer. After surrendering a dramatic walk-off home run to St. Louis Cardinals shortstop Ozzie Smith in Game 5, Niedenfuer stared down Jack Clark with two men on in the top of the ninth in an attempt to close out Game 6. Clark pounded Niedenfuer's fastball deep into the Los Angeles bleachers, giving the Redbirds a lead they would not relinquish, as St. Louis won its second NL pennant in four years.
