  • 2001 - For the first time since the Philadelphia Athletics’s Mule Haas hit a game-tying two-run home run in Game 5 of the 1929 World Series, a team comes from behind to tie a Fall Classic game in the 9th inning and goes on to win in extra innings. A two-out, two-run home run by Tino Martinez in the bottom of the 9th ties the game, and Derek Jeter hits a home run in the bottom of the 10th, giving the Yankees a 3 - 2 victory over Arizona to knot the World Series at two games apiece. Both homers come off Byung-Hyun Kim, who relieves Curt Schilling in the 8th inning. Mariano Rivera gets the win in relief for the Yankees. Following the 2010 season, a panel of experts at the MLB Network will vote this game the 12th greatest game of the past fifty years.
