The 5 Best MLB Moments From Sunday

Another dramatic Sunday full of special baseball moments.

Tied At 88


Going into Sunday Night Baseball at Fenway Park, the Boston Red Sox and the New York Yankees were tied atop the American League Wildcard race with 88 wins each. Something had to give. It was a special night in the ongoing rivalry with the outcome decided in a dramatic fashion. The Red Sox brought in an old favorite as a ringer to help luck shine upon them.


And it all looked good going into the eighth inning, with a bizarre dropped fly-ball off Kyle Schwarber giving the Red Sox the lead in the bottom of the seventh inning.


Then, key Yankees slugger Aaron Judge had a slight finger malfunction.


He managed to bounce back to jump on former Yankee Adam Ottavino to give New York the lead in an eventful eighth inning.


Giancarlo Stanton then topped off a phenomenal weekend at the plate to put the game beyond doubt with a missile!


He won’t have too many better weekends at the plate in a series. The Yankees will hope this continues all week. They take a slender advantage into the last week of the regular season.


Enjoy the sights and sounds of Sunday Night Baseball before it’s gone until Spring.


45 & 150


At the start of the year, everyone who loved baseball had a dream. That was to finally see the Japanese sensation Shohei Ohtani realize his true calling as a modern-day great two-way baseball player. 150 strikeout and 45 home runs later, we can all say we remember the year that Ohtani ascended to that throne.


Ohtani will likely be littered with milestones, achievements, and accolades over the coming weeks and months, however, the only true sadness is that the Angels were once again unable to put out a team that can complement their remarkable superstars. We will once again be devoid of Shohei and Mike Trout in the postseason. Still, it’s been a ride.


The only thing yet to be decided in that coveted MVP award. How do we think Shohei feels about this?


The Cardinals Sweet 16


What an amazing run at an amazing time for the St. Louis Cardinals. Yesterday, they won their 16th straight game. And it tasted so sweet.


With the game tied at 2-2 in the top of the ninth inning, Cubs reliever Codi Heuer got himself into a bases-loaded jam with just one out. What happened next was pretty wild.


Closer Giovanny Gallegos closed out the game to send the Cardinals racing to the postseason.


History awaits them in the week ahead.


The Brew Crew Party


For only the third time in their history, the Milwaukee Brewers clinched the National League Central. It was party time in Milwaukee.


They even rolled out one of the great voices in baseball to celebrate the occasion alongside Christian Yelich.


He then did something rather cool.


Enjoy, Brewers fans!
