“In baseball, a walk-off home run is a home run that ends the game. It must be a home run that gives the home team the lead (and consequently, the win) in the bottom of the final inning of the game—either the ninth inning, or any extra inning, or any other regularly scheduled final inning. It is called a "walk-off" home run because both teams walk off the field immediately afterward, rather than finishing the inning.” ~Wikpedia'~
"ST. LOUIS -- Twice down to their last strike, the St. Louis Cardinals kept rallying to win one of baseball's greatest thrillers.
David Freese completed a startling night of comebacks with a home run leading off the bottom of the 11th inning to beat Texas 10-9 on Thursday night, and suddenly fans all over got something they have waited forever to see: Game 7 in the World Series.” ~Associated Press~
Whatever happens in tonight’s game, I am proud of my Cardinals, proud of being born in the great state of Missouri and proud to be a baseball fan. Don’tcha love it? Kudos to the Rangers too, may the luckiest team win (said with tongue in cheek), simply because the Cards have been living on luck since August!
