1977 ALCS vs. New York Yankees

In a rematch of the previous year's division winners, Kansas City and New York once again battled to the final inning of Game 5 before the American League champion was crowned. The Yankees, trailing two games to one, captured Game 4 in Royals Stadium to force another dramatic showdown in Game 5. Kansas City opened up a 3-1 advantage, but late-game heroics, including a three-run ninth inning, produced a 5-3 Yankee triumph.
