          Was Giambi's Grand Slam, the only extra inning walk off GS ever?

            First since Babe Ruth did it in, I believe, 1929. Ruth only had one out, though.

            Best part of that grand slam? The game was about to be called due to rain. If it had been one batter later, the Yankees would have just lost. So the ONLY way the Yanks don't lose that game is if Giambi hits the walkoff slam. A two run single, and they lose. A triple, and they tie.

              Upon further research, the Ruth slam on 9/24/1925 was in the 10th inning and as ElHalo mentioned there was only one out.

              On June 12th this year Jason Kubel hit a walk off slam against the Red Sox in the 12th inning but the score was tied at 1 at the time.

                To add to the impact of Giambi's GS, the Yankees were down by 3 at the time -- which I believe it also true of Ruth's. If I can remember the broadcast of the Giambi game correctly, those were the only two down by 3 walk off grannies ever.

                  In post #4 I list quite a few "down by 3" walk off grannies. However, Ruth and Giambi may have been the only 2 there occurred in extra innings.

                    yeah, I think it was extra innings -- my memory of a broadcast 4 years ago is a little fuzzy

                    thanks

                        You're correct, on 8/7/2005 against the Braves, Eckstein hit a walk off grand slam but there was only one out and the Cardinals were only down 2 not 3.

                            Wait! Hold it a minute. Add this name. The most patriotic Grand Slam in the modern era!

                            Twins Vs White Sox
                            July 4th 1961
                            1st game of a double header....

                            Twins down by two runs....

                            Bases Loaded....bottom of the 9th

                            3 & 2 count....

                            Pinch Hitter comes to the plate....

                            Pow!!!!!! Grand Slam Homer to win the game by 2.

                            Who was the batter?

                            Julio Becquer....

                            I know because I listened to it on the radio when I was a kid and never forgot that homer!

                            Julio started with the old Senators in 1955.

                            Here is the score card link....if it will show up.

                            Add him! 2 run win is better than 1 run win!!

                              If the game had been called due to rain before the Yankees completed the bottom of the 14th, the Yankees would not have lost. It would be a suspended game, and they'd have to continue the game at a later date.

                              4.10
                              (b) If the score is tied after nine completed innings play shall continue until (1) the visiting team has scored more total runs than the home team at the end of a completed inning, or (2) the home team scores the winning run in an uncompleted inning.
