Another walk-off home run for the Rockies
September 29, 2009 —
For a moment, it looked like the Atlanta Braves were the team with down-the-stretch magic. Then came Chris Iannetta.
The Rockies catcher-turned pinch-hitter cracked a no-doubter one out into the 11th inning to give the team its third walk-off home run of the year. They topped Milwaukee 7-5 in game one of a three-game series.
