Possibly the best regular-season game last year saw two powerhouse offenses go toe-to-toe at Target Field. The Yankees needed rally after rally to keep up with the Bomba Squad Twins, scoring nine times in the final three innings before taking a lead into the bottom of the 10th. Then, with Minnesota threatening a walk-off, Yankees center fielder (and former Twin) Aaron Hicks ended the affair with a sensational diving catch.

A pair of NL West rivals staged a wild back-and-forth affair in this winner-take-all game in Phoenix. The D-backs knocked out Rockies starter Jon Gray, as a three-run homer by Paul Goldschmidt helped Arizona jump out to a 6-0 lead. But the Rockies roared back against D-backs ace Zack Greinke, cutting the lead to just one in the seventh inning. The tide turned again when D-backs reliever Archie Bradley knocked an extremely rare two-run triple, extending an Arizona lead it would not relinquish.
Before Kirk Gibson hit his famous pinch-hit homer in Game 1 of the 1988 World Series, he helped the Dodgers reach the Fall Classic with heroics in this game. The Mets held a two-games-to-one lead in the series and ace Dwight Gooden was cruising into the ninth with a two-run lead, but Dodgers catcher Mike Scioscia knocked a two-run homer to tie the game and send it to extras. Then, Gibson – mired in a 1-for-16 slump in the series – knocked a two-out homer in the top of the 12th. Orel Hershiser came out of the bullpen to snuff out a bases-loaded rally for the Mets in the bottom half, clinching a dramatic series-tying win for L.A.
The 1997 season came down to a winner-take-all game in South Florida, and it was the nascent Marlins who prevailed over the powerful Indians thanks to Edgar Renteria’s walk-off single in the bottom of the 11th.
