MLB History Was Created
In the first decade of the 21st century, one of the best baseball games in the world was played between the Yankees and the Minnesota Twins. At the beginning of the tenth inning, the game was tied at nine, and the Twins went on to score three runs in the top of the 14th inning to take the lead. However, the Yankees were unable to score the tying run and the game ended in a tie, three runs in the 14th inning, and a walk-off grand slam by Jason Giambi against Mike Trombley to end the game at five hours, forty-five minutes.
The “Shot Heard ‘Round” was coined after the game, which took place at the Polo Grounds in uptown Manhattan. The Yankees and Red Sox had a longstanding rivalry that reached its zenith on this fateful October day. With a combined record of 96-58, the teams faced off in the best-of-three series for the National League pennant. The Yankees won the first game and led the series by one game, but the Red Sox came back and forced Game seven.
The 2005 game was a pitchers’ duel that is considered one of the greatest baseball games in history. Both pitchers had tremendous impact on the game, as only four hits were registered in the entire game. The game was so exciting that no Twins player reached third base, due to an error by a Yankees pitcher. But the tense contest and unforgettable performances made this game a memorable event in MLB history.
The game was an epic one. The Yankees and Twins played it at D.C. Stadium, later known as RFK Stadium. The game started with the Twins trailing 2-0, but it soon became a nail-biter, going into extra innings. In the eighth, Magglio Ordonez hit a home run to tie the score. The game featured several rallys by both teams, revealing the desperation of each team to avoid packing it in.
The Twins took a 4-2 lead, but the Yankees came back with a 3-2 lead and a three-run sixth inning. Then, in the seventh, Miguel Sano and Jose Miranda each hit a solo home run. It was an enthralling game, and a classic game of baseball.
The Twins, meanwhile, are good enough to remain in first place in the AL Central if the Yankees leave the series early. The depth of their lineup is impressive, and they’ve been plagued by injuries and illness. This makes them the underdogs in this game. However, Byron Buxton is coming out of his worst slump in his career.
It was the beginning of a long-standing rivalry between the Yankees and the Twins. The Twins were a major contender five years after their 1982 season. Their rookie team had a disappointing 31-56 road record. But they roared home and boosted their team’s record to 61-25 in the Metrodome. The game was filled with boisterous fans who ratcheted up the noise level to a 747-level.
