The most devastating (for me) base hit I ever saw. I am sure Mariner fans feel otherwise.

Good catch, my bad on that one, maybe that's why I don't remember seeing it on highlight reels.

I don't remember seeing his game winning hit on highlight reels which is kind of odd because it ended the series. You think they would replay that hit more often.

I called it in the 7th inning, even if none of you believe me 🙂

The game you mention:
http://www.baseball-reference.com/boxes/NYA/NYA192610100.shtml

When Babe Ruth was caught stealing in the 7th game of the 1926 World Series and the Yankees down 3-2 with 2 out in the bottom of the 9th..

I wonder if Ruth was going on his own?
Was it a busted hit & run?.
Looks like it was on the first pitch to Yankee clean up hitter Bob Meusel.

In the game Ruth was 1 for 1 (a homer) and 4 walks!!!

On the regular season Ruth had 11 steals and was caught 9 times.
His most stolen bases in a season was 1923 when he stole 17 and was caught 21 times.

Meusel hit .315 on the regular (1926) season but had only 12 homers.
He only played in 108 games after playing 156 games the previous year in 1925 when he had a career high 33 homers and 138 RBI's.

1925 I believe Ruth was out much of the year with the bad stomach.

Maybe the Babe was hungry for that 1926 WS game to be over so he could get to the spread in the club house which was featuring hot dogs. <;-}...

I don't really remember seeing it highlight reels that often.

Ah, but what about the postseason series that ended with a runner from the losing team being thrown out on the bases after a walk?

Yes, Hammonds’ hit in 2003 was the only one by a player from the losing team that ended a postseason series. It was also the only postseason game-ending hit for a team that lost that game by one run. Two other postseason games have ended with a runner from the losing team being thrown out on the bases after a base hit.

1. With two outs and the bases loaded in the top of the ninth of game 4 of the 1953 World Series and the Yankees losing 7-2, Mickey Mantle singled to left off the Dodgers’ Clem Labine, scoring Gene Woodling, but on the play Billy Martin was thrown out at home by Don Thompson, who had replaced Jackie Robinson in left to begin the ninth inning.

2. With two outs and no runners on in the bottom of the ninth inning of Game 1 of the 2007 NLCS, Arizona pinch hitter Miguel Montero was thrown out by Colorado left fielder Matt Holliday trying to stretch a single into a double. The Rockies won the game 5-1.

More like a "series losing hit," if that even makes sense. The only series losing hit in postseason history?
