The Most Dramatic Three Minutes in Baseball History?

RAYS 8, YANKEES 7 (12)
ORIOLES 4, RED SOX 3

Rays. Nine games back in September. Down to their last strike of the game. Then — Dan Johnson homers!

(snip)

Red Sox. Needing one more strike to win it. Then — Nolan Reimold RBI double off Jonathan Papelbon! Then — Robert Andino walkoff RBI single! Orioles win!

(three minutes later...)

Rays. 12th inning. 7-7 tie. And — Evan Longoria walkoff homer! Rays win! 2011 AL Wild Card winners! Congrats to Tampa Bay!

That was probably the most enjoyable baseball ending I could have experienced tonight (with the exception of Kemp hitting one more HR). Amazing.

Kept stealing glances at my iPhone all through my kid's scout meeting... bad parenting? Perhaps. But, it's the last game for our season, so, I'll cut myself some slack.

God, I love this game.

I am soooo looking forward to next year.

Ha, we were all juggling. I was flipping back and forth between games on TV, while watching dodgers on my iPhone.

Barry Zito was juggling my balls.
