OMG AND NOW Giancarlo Stanton Hit a 118-MPH, Walk-off Grand Slam (Down Three Runs!)

Baseball Is Fun

Yeah, there’s going to be a lot of people calling in “sick” to work tomorrow in New York.

Entering the bottom of the 9th inning down four runs to the Pittsburgh Pirates, Aaron Judge hit his 60th home run of the season, a feat matched by just five other players in MLB history. That, even with a loss, would have been more than enough to celebrate for a team barreling towards another AL East crown in late September.

But they didn’t stop there.

Anthony Rizzo followed Judge with a double, and was advanced to third after Gleyber Torres walked and Josh Donaldson singled. That’s when Giancarlo Stanton stepped up to the plate, down three runs, with the bases loaded and did this:

WALK.OFF.GRAND.SLAM.

(It wasn’t technically an “ultimate” grand slam, because the Yankees weren’t down to their final out, but it was damn close, down three runs in the last inning of regulation).

It’s just crazy to me, that a 118 MPH walk-off-grand slam down three runs is only the second coolest homer of the night. But here we are.

Here’s the mob.
