WATCH: Jason Giambi hits unbelievable walk-off home run to save Indians

  • David Whitlock

There are walk-off’s, and there are walk-off’s.  Jason Giambi defined insipiration home run, by becoming the oldest player in major league history at 42-years-old to hit a walk-off, and send the Indians to an improbable 5-4 victory over the Chicago White Sox to preserve their tenuous 1-game lead in the American League Wild Card race.  Watch the former American League MVP club it out to a delighted crowd with 2 outs in the 9th inning (via MLB.com)

 

The blow came after a blown save by Indians closer Chris Perez.  Can you say team of destiny?  In case you wonder how big it was, just ask Indians 1B/OF Nick Swisher (via Twitter):

David Whitlock - manager

David (a.k.a. Longhorndave or lhd_on_sports) joined the staff late in the 2012 season and moved to Site Manager in early 2013. A lifelong Houston Astros fan (and mini-season ticket holder for 9 years) he attends 20+ games per year. A statistics freak, David still keeps score the "old fashioned way" on occasion (and has kept manual score of World Series games since 1986 and retains the sheets). He was a featured guest weekly on the Phil Naessens Show. He is also a Texas Longhorns alumnus and huge football and baseball fan of his alma mater. When he isn't watching or writing about baseball, he works as a contractor at NASA Johnson Space Center. He lives by the mantra "a bad day at the ballpark is better than a good day anywhere else."
