From the Cubune:

It was the Cubs' biggest blown lead in a loss since April 17, 1976, when they led the Philadelphia Phillies 12-1 after three innings at Wrigley Field. Mike Schmidt hit four homers in that game, as the Phillies rallied to beat the Cubs 18-16 in 10 innings.

That really says something. That Cubs loss is a truly historic game that I remember vividly from my youth. A true humdinger of a loss.
