Mr. Miracle, Andre Ethier: The King of Walk-Offs!
Wednesday night September 15 2009 , in the bottom of the 13th inning, Andre Ethier did it again! He had yet another walk-off homerun! That is Ethier’s 4th walk-off homerun and 6th walk-off this year!!.
This is Vin Scully’s call of that walk-off homerun
” Fastball.. High drive into deep right! Back goes Jones! To the wall! Is gone!”
—Pause by Vinny while you see Ethier round the bases and the players rush to mob him and congratulate him while the crowd is going crazy and in the background you hear I Love LA _the victory song for the Dodgers.
“Andre Ethier who could better be known as Mr. Miracle comes up with a walk-off homerun” “And the Dodgers hang on and beat the last place Pirates 5-4. A Little bit a magic…”
Thank you Mr. Scully! I never get tired of seeing this at the stadium and coming home to watch the highlights!
I played it a few times and copied the link that Buz put in his blog http://buzblog.mlblogs.com/
