    Rockies score 9 in bottom of 9th to beat Cardinals!

    Down 9-3 heading into the bottom of the 9th, Rockies pull off the miracle and score 9 to win 12-9.

    It can happen to any team. Thought it just happened to us (Atlanta). Cards got a taste tonight. Sa-weet.

    Amazing. In addition to the Braves doing it to us earlier this year, I remember it also happening a few years back when we blew one like that at home against the Cardinals. Glad they got one tonight.

    This is so cool.

    That should send the Cardinals into a mini-tail spin. I'll be shocked if they don't lose 3 of their next 5 before the All-Star break.

    It said that no team in the modern era of baseball has ever scored 9 runs in the bottom of the 9th inning to win a game.

    I do believe that Dave Winfield was the losing pitcher for the University of Minnesota during the College World Series where the team he pitched against scored 9 runs in the bottom of the 9th to win the game.

    That's the only other time I've heard it happening before.

    I'm just gutted I didn't stay up to see it!

    Watched the Reds game. Bit blah. Started watching the Rockies game. It looked a bit ominous and I didn't want to see all the gloating Cards fans - so called it a night and went to bed.

    Got up this morning and it was like - what?????

    That really had to sting.

    Love it. If there's any sense of justice and fairness, the little Cincinnati Reds will win the division this year, and that team of arrogant whiners can spend October watching tv and rubbing their baseballs at home.

    That was awesome.

    Didn't a Lasorda-led Dodgers team score double-digit runs in the bottom 9th against the Phillies? I was a young kid then...it's probably been 15 years but I still remember watching Lasorda running around his dugout with his hands on his head in disbelief.

    Little-known fact: Dusty Baker was on that particular Dodgers' team and the sight of Lasorda running aimlessly around the basepaths was the inspiration for Bakermetrics. But you already knew that.

    I did not know that, although I did see Dusty running around the dugout with his hands over his eyes last night when he elected to let Maloney pitch to two righties with RISP, a decision which is even more baffling when one considers Maloney was obviously gassed. I have been studying Bakermetrics for a LONG time and I have dedicated my life to this endeavor, yet even I was clueless as to that logic.

    I actually do remember seeing that clip of Lasorda running around helter-skelter with his hands on his head. It could well have been at the culmination of an improbable rally. It is equally likely that Tommy had suddenly awakened from one of his infamous dugout snoozes and thought he was late for school.

    I think you are thinking of the game in 1990 where the Dodgers got beat by the Phillies scoring 8 runs in the ninth. They were hot on our heels at the time, and they never recovered from the loss.

    Lasorda flung a can of pop (beer?) off a shelf in the dugout when John Kruk tied the game on a homer.

    Shades of Adam Dunn beating Cleveland with a walk off grandslam a few years ago. I think the Reds had scored 9 runs in there final 2 at-bats.
    ...the 2-2 to Woodsen and here it comes...and it is swung on and missed! And Tom Browning has pitched a perfect game! Twenty-seven outs in a row, and he is being mobbed by his teammates, just to the thirdbase side of the mound.

    Or it might wake them up. Either way, I would like to be a fly on the wall in their locker room.
