2001 World Series, Game 4: Diamondbacks @ Yankees

MLB Vault
Arizona Diamondbacks 3 at New York Yankees 4, F/10 — Under a full moon on Halloween night, the Yankees pulled off one of the most spectacular and dramatic comebacks in history. Arizona ace Curt Schilling — starting on three days rest for the first time in his career — was solid through seven innings, giving way to closer Byung-Hyun Kim in the 8th. Kim retired the next five batters, and the D-backs were just one out away from taking a commanding 3-1 Series lead. Cue Yankee magic: Tino Martinez, 0-for-9 to this point, clobbers the first pitch for a ninth-inning, two-out, two run blast to tie the game, 3-3. Mariano Rivera retired the side in the 10th, and neatly set the stage for Derek Jeter’s dramatic walk-off home run in the bottom of the inning. The ball flew out of the park and into a jubilant Yankee Stadium crowd just as the clock crept   past midnight, instantly earning Jeter the moniker Mr. November.
