The Baseball Desert

Ain't over...

For those who may be looking for evidence that baseball is the greatest sport there is, I'd like to present Exhibit A: the Dodgers, trailing the Padres 9-5 in the bottom of the ninth, hit four consecutive home runs to tie the game. Then, after having given up the go-ahead in the top of the tenth, they won the game in the bottom of the inning on a walk-off two-run homer from Nomar.

It doesn't get much better than that.

Update: I don't know about better, but there was a game in Atlanta on Sunday that was just as crazy, with the Braves overcoming a four-run deficit in the tenth to win by one run. (Thanks to Joy of Sox for the link).
