Post-Season Game 6 Or Later, Home Team RBI In 8th & 9th Inning

Posted by Steve Lombardi on October 28, 2011

According to my rough scan, last night was only the third time in basebal history where we had a post-season Game 6 or later where the home team drove in runs in both the bottom of the 8th and 9th innings:

Of course, the Cardinals, last night, scored in the bottom of the 8th, 9th, 10th and 11th innings. What a game!

  1. Are you saying no team's ever done it in the 8th... 9th... 10th... & 11th?

    Man that was awesome last night. I'm ready for the encore!

  2. How many times has the 8th-9th-10th-11th feat been pulled off in the regular season?

  3. Take a look at this game.

    Astros scored in the 6th, 7th, 8th, 9th, 10th and 11th innings ... and lost the game.

  4. This one is pretty wild too.

    Both teams scored in the 6th, 7th, 8th, 10th and 11th innings.

  5. @2, Brendan.

    Looks like the last time in the regular season that the home team scored in the 8th, 9th, 10th and 11th innings was this game, June 28, 1984.

    Quite similar to WS game 6, the visitors (Mariners) pulled ahead late, the Red Sox got close in the 8th, tied it in the 9th, matched the Mariners two-spot in the 10th and won it on a HR in the 11th. The RBIs in the 8th, 10th and 11th came with 2 outs.
