#95 is here.

#94 September 3, 1973 The Bobby Bonds Walk Off

You love a walk off homer, right?  How about this - a walk off homer that reverses the game; meaning you're losing - but then hit a walk off homer and win?  Now how about if that happens against the Dodgers?

In Candlestick history - that happened once.  The Giants trailed 8-1 in the 7th giving LA a 99% win expectancy.  The Giants scored 6 in the 7th, but still went into the 9th down 8-7; we loaded the bases and then Bobby Bonds hit a walk off grand slam reversal to beat the Dodgers.

How cool is that?

#93 tomorrow.
