Johan Santana Region: #3 vs. #14

3. Francisco Liriano Tosses a No-Hitter

At this point in 2011 the Twins still had playoff hopes, in addition to hopes that Liriano would continue his comeback 2010 season and be the dominant pitcher we had hoped for since 2006. He wasn't dominant in this game, but man. I was so freaking nervous in the 9th inning. Thankfully we have audio of Gordo calling it.

14. Delmon Young Homers off Rivera

In a late 2008 baseball game, the Yankees were leading by three in the eight when Mariano Rivera came in to lock down one of his patented (not really) multi-inning saves. He had converted 28 consecutive save chances while allowing one earned run. He got ahead of DelmOn 0-2. Then this happened.

  1. I’m not sure I could bring myself to vote for anything involving _elm_n, even if it was something that came at the expense of the Yankmes. (Well, a walk-off homer to win a playoff series would definitely get my vote. Absent that...uffda.)

    Fortunately, I didn’t have to this round.
