Challenge Answered

Our friend Brian from 30-Year Old Cardboard issued an "Open Challenge to ALL Bloggers." He asked everyone to do a top 10 baseball memories post. Here's my top 3:

Wednesday May 6, 1998 - Kerry Wood strikesout 20 batters
When I got home from school my dad was watching this game. It was probably in the fifth or sixth inning. We watched the final few innings together as Kerry Wood continued to mow down the Houston Astros batters.

Tuesday May 8, 2001 - Randy Johnson strikesout 20 batters
An ordinary tuesday night early in the Diamondbacks season gave us a glimpse of what was to come later that Fall. I remember the questions of whether or not this would count since the game was tied at the end of the ninth inning. Any way you look at it, Randy Johnson's performance was magnificant.

Sunday November 4, 2001 - Diamondbacks win World Series
The Diamondbacks overcame some bad luck in New York to bring the World Series back to Phoenix. They demolished the Yankees in Game 6 to force a Game 7. Tony Womack, Jay Bell, and Luis Gonzalez helped defeat the mighty Yankees and Mariano Rivera in the ninth inning.
