You forgot Julio Becquer's pinch hit grand slam to beat the White Sox in the bottom of the ninth 1961

I could be off by a day or two, but wasn't July 4th, 1974, the that Bert Blyleven nearly lost a one hit game (a homerun to right field that hit the pipe top of the fence, bounced up and just fell on the other side) but was won when the Twins got a run in the ninth? If it wasn't the Fourth, something else must have been going on because there were a LOT of fans in the park that game!

Just looked it up: yep, it was July 4th. I was sitting in the left field stands. Bert was pitching great that day... when you can be sitting almost 400' from the plate and 'get' that Bert's curve was breaking about 2'... well, except for that homerun, he simply owned the Rangers. Again, 21,000 in attendance, and a big celebration with the win. And they were one out away from losing.
