Phil Niekro was up 1-0 over the Cardinals in the first game of the 1982 NLCS, but the game got rained out, and the Cardinals swept the next three games to get to the World Series, and ultimately the World Championship.
Niekro was also a decent hitter for a pitcher, if I remember correctly. And he and his brother Joe were one of the best sets of brothers in baseball.
