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.

The Phillies returned home following a three-game road sweep of the Houston Astros to start the 1993 season for their home opener at Veterans Stadium against the Chicago Cubs. Over 60,000 were on hand to see the Phillies hope to keep the hot streak going and for a brief amount of time it looked as though the roll would continue for this cast of misfits. But a quick lead quickly turned in to a deficit as the Cubs spoiled the home opener and handed the Phillies their first loss of the 1993 season, resulting in the one day of the entire season the Phillies would not occupy first place in the National League East.no comments
