One of the wildest playoff baseball games ever, this gem gets overshadowed because the Yankees lost the series and because Game 5 was also an epic extra inning thriller that ultimately determined who won. Gary Thorne announcing adds a ton of adrenaline and excitement to everything that happens here. Don Mattingly hits a farewell dinger that causes fans to litter the field, Griffey hits an extra inning homer, Ruben Sierra just misses a homer on his tying double only to lead to his teammate gunned down at home plate with the winning run. Throughout, both teams were furious at the umps all night. Oh, and Jim Leyritz gets his first whiff of Yankees lore before hitting his most iconic homer a year later.
