Box score of the week

It's the baseball postseason, so let's focus on that, shall we.

Let's check out Game 5 from the 1999 NLCS where the New York Mets, down 3 games to 1, hosted the Atlanta Braves.


With the score tied at three in the bottom of the 15th inning, the Mets' Robin Ventura came to the plate with the bases loaded and blasted a pitch over the center field wall for a game-winning........single? Yes, after Ventura's blast, he was mobbed by teammates as he rounded first base, thus never completing his journey around the bases. It mattered not, as the Mets stayed alive in the series.
