There is nothing I can possibly say in this space to do justice to this game. There were a couple of occasions late in the game when I made a point of turning away from the deadline pressure I was facing and reminding myself that I was witnessing something truly, truly special, something that no one who was here and stuck it out to the end — which, incidentally, came at 1:37 a.m. local time — will ever forget. I have only seen a handful of games in this ballpark — this was the 15th, by my recollection — but almost all of them have been memorable. There was the 12-inning game to start the 2000 World Series. There were two-run homers by Tino Martinez and Scott Brosius, both with two outs in the ninth, to send Games 4 and 5 of the 2001 Series to extra innings, both of which the Yankees went on to win. There was Game 6 of the 2003 Series, when Florida’s Josh Beckett pitched a five-hit shutout to give the Marlins the title. But I can honestly say none of that compared to tonight.
