BASEBALL: Walkoff Trivia

Baseball-Reference.com (which, by the way, just debuted a brand new updated-thru-2007 minor league stats page with stats going back to 1992, including helpful all-on-one-page listings by franchise/year - see here for the 2007 Mets farmhands), has a breakout of the 8 walkoff homers to end a postseason series. There's a bunch of fun ways to do the trivia on this one (e.g., name the pitchers), but try this: 7 of the 8 came in tie games. Which was the only one hit from behind?

Joe Carter's homer to win Game Six in the 1993 World Series. The Jays were trailing 6-5 at the time.

Joe Carter?

And while we're on it, I'd love to try to remember all 8, but I can't.

All I can think of are Carter, Mazeroski, and Ozzie. Unless they're including Bobby Thompson as a "post-season" walk-off.

Hmmmm, did Alomar's homer off Eck come in a deciding game?

Ugh. How did I forget Todd Pratt??? And Chambliss.

While Gibson's did not technicially end the Series it effectively ended it. Give the man an asterix.

Burke and Ortiz I missed - I am better at the old stuff. Landrum was not a walk off and now that I think about it, they were at Chicago...
