The 1993 Phillies were one of the most unlikely teams to make a World Series run, but that’s what made the run so special. Daulton played no small part and played a part in toppling the Braves in the 1993 NLCS.

Through the first four games of the series, Daulton had just one hit with five walks, but he made his presence known in Games Five and Six.
In Game Five, Daulton was 1-for-2 with a walk heading into the ninth inning. The Phillies had a 2-0 lead at that point thanks to Curt Schilling. Facing Braves closer Greg McMichael, Daulton hit a leadoff solo home run in the inning.
That extra run proved key as the Braves tied the game in the bottom of the ninth, but Philadelphia retook the lead in the 10th and won.
In Game Six, Daulton helped swing the game in Philly’s favor with a two-run double that opened up the scoring in the game. They went on to win 6-3, taking home the NL pennant and advancing to the World Series.
