On This Day: October 17th

October 17, 2004

Game 4 ALCS Walk-off HR in bottom of 12th inning against Yankees to make the series 3-1.

I was ready for this at bat. If we lose, we go home so I knew I needed to step up and make something happen.  The Yankees reliever (Paul Quantrill) came into the game and I remembered what he threw me to get me out earlier in the season, a front-door sinker.  So I expected to see that pitch again.  He threw it again and like I said, I was ready.  We win that game and we’re able to play another game.
