#FarewellCandlestick: The 100 Greatest Moments in Candlestick Park History #62

#63 is here.

#62 May 2 1995 5 Hours of Scoreless

I don't know how many games in MLB history have been scoreless through 14 innings.

Fewer still were rivalry games, scoreless through 14 innings, where in the top of the 15th the hated opponents scored 3 only to then have the hometown heroes score 4 to walk off winners.

This was that - it was Hideo Nomo's MLB debut for the Dodgers (one of 17 pitchers in the game). LA left a runner in scoring position in the 9th and had runners on the corners with 1 out in the 12th, but in the 15th got to Mark Dewey with three straight singles and then a two run Eric Karros double.  3-0 LA, bottom of the 15th.

The first two Giants made outs, giving San Francisco a 0.0% win probability.

Admit it, you're not still at the ballpark, right?  5 hours later on a Tuesday in May?

Jeff Reed walked.
Darren Lewis hit a two strike single.
Robby Thompson hit a game tying 3 run homer.

Barry Bonds singled.
Matt Williams doubled him home.

Giants 4 Dodgers 3

#61 is tomorrow
