Phillies Vault: Shane Victorino Day walk-off

June 17th, 2021

MLB.com is digging back into its massive video vault to uncover classic plays that you have loved, forgotten about or, perhaps, are discovering for the very first time. Watch these moments and many, many more on the MLB Vault YouTube page.

June 3, 2007: Nō Ka ‘Oi!
Shane Victorino had so many big hits in his Phillies career, including five walk-off plate appearances in the regular season. This one might have been the most fun because it happened on Victorino's figurine day and Harry Kalas added a little Hawaiian flair for the Flyin' Hawaiian's dramatics. This might have been one of Kalas' most memorable calls, and he certainly had many.

June 10, 2005: Bell's walk-off homer keeps Phillies hot
Larry Andersen said something during this homer that jogged the memory. The Phillies had a 12-1 homestand from May 31 to June 12, 2005, moving from 24-27 to 36-28 in the process. David Bell was always a throwback player. Also, notice the absolute lack of emotion as he rounded the bases after hitting that walk-off three-run homer. Did he enjoy this shot at all?

June 21, 2003: Pratt's dramatic walk-off homer at the Vet
Most Phillies fans might remember this home run because Todd Pratt nearly stumbled as he approached second base following an aggressive fist bump. But the excitement this afternoon at Veterans Stadium was palpable. Remember, Phillies fans were still riding high following the arrival of Jim Thome and the Red Sox always helped fill the ballpark. The Red Sox scored a run in the 12th, but Thome hit a game-tying homer in the bottom of the inning. The Sox scored twice in the 13th, but David Bell's one-out double scored Bobby Abreu to put them within one. Pratt then launched the walk-off homer to center.

Sept. 27, 2003: Chase Utley's first walk-off hit
Utley had five walk-off hits in his career, and his first came in the second-to-final game in Veterans Stadium history. Utley hit a 3-0 pitch from Trey Hodges up the middle to score Jim Thome from third base to beat the Braves in 10 innings, 7-6. Utley's five walk-off hits each came as a member of the Phillies. Three were walk-off home runs.

June 4, 2013: Mayberry slams 2 HRs, notches 5 RBIs in extras
John Mayberry Jr. hit only 56 home runs in his career, but he saved two of them for an incredible night at Citizens Bank Park. Homer No. 1 came off Marlins reliever Steve Cishek to tie the ballgame in the bottom of the 10th, while homer No. 2 -- in the very next inning -- was a grand slam to walk it off for the Phils. Mayberry is one of only two players (along with Red Sox outfielder Clyde Vollmer in 1951) to tally five RBIs after the ninth inning in a single game, per the Elias Sports Bureau.

Sept. 23, 1983: Carlton K's 12 for 300th victory
We've seen veteran pitchers hang on past their prime to get that coveted 300th career win, but there was nothing mediocre about the way Steve Carlton got to the milestone. Lefty became MLB's 16th 300-win pitcher after a dominant 12-strikeout, one-walk performance against the Cardinals in which he surrendered only two runs across eight innings. The '83 campaign was perhaps Carlton's last dominant season as he paced the Majors with 275 strikeouts and recorded a 3.11 ERA across a league-high 283 2/3 innings while leading the Phillies to their second pennant in four years.

May 14, 2006: Howard homers twice, carries Phils off the bench
Ryan Howard started 157 games during his NL MVP Award-winning '06 campaign, and he made a huge impact even in one the few that he didn't start. In this May contest, Howard did exactly what manager Charlie Manuel had in mind when Manuel called Howard's name to pinch-hit in the eighth, not only immediately tying up the Reds with a homer off Brandon Claussen, but later delivering a go-ahead tater off the batter's eye in the 12th. With the Phillies on his back, Howard powered his club to a 2-1 victory in Cincinnati.

May 1, 1996: Incaviglia hits one to the moon
When big Pete Incaviglia got hold of a pitch, forget about it. In this May 1996 game against the Marlins, Incaviglia (freshly returned from a year of overseas ball in Japan) torqued his entire 225-pound frame into an Al Leiter fastball and launched it to the facing of the very top deck at Miami's Joe Robbie Stadium. This blast traveled an estimated 482 feet, perhaps the longest big league homer ever hit by a player that didn't even play the rest of the ballgame he hit it in (Inky was replaced for defense the very next half-inning).

Oct. 11, 1980: Rose bowls over Bochy for winning run
The 1980 NLCS between the Phillies and Astros ranks among the most closely contested postseason series ever; Philadelphia outscored Houston by one run across the series, and each of the last four contests went into extra innings. The Phillies needed a win at the Astrodome to keep their season alive in Game 4, and Pete Rose was willing to do whatever it took to make that happen.

In the top of the 10th, Greg Luzinski hit a double to left that had a favorable bounce for Jose Cruz. The Astros outfielder relayed to shortstop Rafael Landestoy, but Landestoy's throw short-hopped to catcher Bruce Bochy and squirted away. Rose made extra sure Bochy wouldn't get the ball in time for the tag, barreling his shoulder right into the future World Series-champion manager's chest. The Phillies forced Game 5 and eventually won their first World Series title.

April 15, 2013: Revere amazes with full-extension catch
Phillies center fielder Ben Revere's glove was already drawing eyes after he taped a "PRAY for Boston" message onto it to show support for victims of the Boston Marathon bombings. Then, Revere showed what he could do with that leather. Todd Frazier drove a ball that kept carrying toward the wall in right-center, forcing Revere to turn and get on his horse before making a mind-blowing, full-extension dive to corral the ball over his right shoulder.

Not satisfied with just the catch, Revere quickly got back up and fired the ball in to double off Jay Bruce at first base. This catch-of-the-year candidate earned Revere a standing ovation from many in the Cincinnati crowd.

June 23, 1971: Wise's all-time day
Phillies right-hander Rick Wise enjoyed the type of day that just about every other pitcher in history could only dream about. In this June contest, Wise homered not once, but twice at the plate. Below is his second homer off Clay Carroll in the eighth.

Oh -- and Wise also happened to author a no-hitter that day against a Big Red Machine lineup featuring stars George Foster, Lee May, Johnny Bench, Tony Perez, Hal McRae, Dave Concepcion and Pete Rose, who made the final out. Wise is still the most recent pitcher to homer during his own no-hitter.
