The Thrill of the Comeback, Presented by the D-Backs

Posted By on Wed, Sep 28, 2011 at 2:00 PM

There's something to be said about people who stay at a baseball game until the final out. Even if the home team had given up five runs in the top of the 10th inning to turn a tight 1-1 game into a 6-1 blowout.

A Tuesday night road trip to Phoenix resulted in witnessing one of the most amazing comebacks in baseball history when the Arizona Diamondbacks waited until the absolute last possible moment to beat the visiting Los Angeles Dodgers and keep alive their hopes for having home field advantage in the first round of the National League playoffs.

I could try to give you a detailed, pitch-by-pitch analysis of the amazing rally, but instead you're better off watching the video [web producer's note: which you will have to go to MLB.com to watch, because Major League Baseball is dumb and won't allow embeds] to get a real sense of what happened. If you listen closely you can hear me 'woohooing' in the background.
