On Saturday, Angel Pagan of the Giants hit perhaps the greatest walkoff of the season. With San Francisco trailing 5-4 in the bottom of the tenth following a Troy Tulowitzki homer in the top of the inning, Brandon Crawford led off with a walk against Rockies closer Rafael Betancourt. Quillermo Quiroz bunted Crawford over to second to bring up Pagan, who hit a deep fly ball off the base of the wall in right center field. The ball bounced over the head of Colorado right fielder Michael Cuddyer, and Pagan just kept on running. Dexter Fowler fielded the ball and threw home, but Pagan slid in safely just underneath the tag of Wilin Rosario, giving the Giants a 6-5 win in the most exciting of ways. You can't get your heart racing any faster than this watching the end of a ballgame, that's for sure. [follow]

  • Thank goodness for the Pagan hit or MLB would again be seeing the horrible call from the previous inning, where an umpire blindly calls a runner out at home using the "he made the tag" call instead of noticing the extended leg crossing the plate about 3 feet earlier, replayed for the next 24 hours. Need a replay official at a monitor and a bluetooth in every umpires ear to overturn these horrible calls.
  • And this shows why the overuse (or use at all) of the stupid ESPN phrase "walk off" is ridiculous. Used by people who watch sports, but never actually PLAYED sports.
