As today is the last day (potentially) of regular season baseball, may I draw your attention to one wild game last night between the Arizona Diamondbacks and the Glendale, Calif., Dodgers.
The game goes into extra innings tied 1-1. Dodgers immediately score 5 runs. In the bottom of the 10th with two out, the Diamondbacks … well … here, see for yourself.
H/T to the AP’s Tim Dahlberg who actually gets paid to watch these things. (What a job!)
PS: Do you remember Kirk Gibson’s home run in 1988 World Series? He’s the D’backs manager. Note the homage fist-pump to his skipper in the walk-off.
PPS: Where were you on that night in 1988? I listened to the game on radio. Baseball and radio — still a media marriage made in heaven.
PPPS: Vin Scully’s called it this way: "The impossible has happened." Don Drysdale said: "I don’t believe what I just saw." You can hear a montage of Dodger radio here.
PPPPS: It was Jack Buck who could not believe his eyes, not Don Drysdale. Thanks to reader John F for the eagle eye/ear.
