DS thrillers on tap for Walk-off Wednesday

June 16th, 2020

MLB Network is rolling out another edition of "Walk-off Wednesday" this week, with five thrilling postseason walk-offs on tap.

Here's a look at the full schedule (all times ET):

9 a.m.: 2016 NLDS Game 3 -- Cubs vs. Giants

With the Giants looking to avoid a sweep, Joe Panik came through with a walk-off RBI double in the 13th inning to extend the 2016 NLDS. That capped off a thrilling back-and-forth affair in which Cubs starter Jake Arrieta kicked off the scoring with a three-run homer off Madison Bumgarner in the second inning. The Giants rallied with five runs of their own, only to have Kris Bryant hit a game-tying two-run homer in the ninth, setting the stage for Panik's extra-innings walk-off.

12 p.m.: 2019 NLDS Game 4 -- Braves vs. Cardinals

With the Braves looking to secure a spot in the 2019 NLCS, the Cardinals instead forced a winner-take-all Game 5 thanks to Yadier Molina's clutch late-game contributions. Though Marcell Ozuna hit a pair of homers to ignite the Cards offense, Molina came through with a game-tying RBI single with two outs in the bottom of the eighth inning before later delivering a walk-off sacrifice fly in the 10th.

3 p.m.: 2018 NLDS Game 1 -- Rockies vs. Brewers

The Brewers appeared to be coasting to victory in the opener of the 2018 NLDS, carrying a 2-0 lead into the ninth inning against the Rockies. Four Milwaukee pitchers had teamed up to allow only one hit to that point, while striking out 10 Colorado hitters. The Rockies, however, began the ninth with three consecutive hits, including a Charlie Blackmon run-scoring single, off Jeremy Jeffress, then tied the game on Nolan Arenado's sacrifice fly. The rally went for naught, as Mike Moustakas plated Christian Yelich with a walk-off single in the 10th.

7 p.m.: 2007 ALDS Game 2 -- Yankees vs. Indians

This one is better remembered for Joba Chamberlain and the swarm of midges than for Travis Hafner's 11th-inning walk-off single. With the Yankees clinging to a 1-0 lead, Chamberlain experienced serious control issues while trying to deal with the relentless insects. Chamberlain issued two walks, hit a batter and uncorked a pair of wild pitches, including one that allowed Grady Sizemore to race home for the tying run. The game remained tied until Hafner came through with his walk-off hit with two outs and the bases loaded in the 11th.

9 p.m.: 2003 ALDS Game 1 -- Red Sox vs. Athletics

With two outs and the bases loaded in the bottom of the 12th inning, Athletics catcher Ramon Hernandez left the Red Sox stunned when he dropped down a perfect squeeze bunt for a walk-off victory. That decisive blow came only after Erubiel Durazo forced the game into extras with a two-out game-tying single in the bottom of the ninth inning. Though the A's also went on to win Game 2, the Red Sox got the last laugh with three consecutive victories to close out the series.
