Rockies 9, Padres 8 (13 innings) | 2007 NL wild card tiebreaker
After the host Rockies took a 3-0 lead against pitching triple-crown winner Jake Peavy and the Padres countered with Adrian Gonzalez's grand slam, the game went into extra innings tied 6-6. Scott Hairston's two-run homer in the 13th off Jorge Julio, the ninth of 10 pitchers used by Colorado, looked like the final blow, but all-time saves leader Trevor Hoffman was greeted by a pair of doubles and Matt Holliday's game-tying triple. Holliday then tagged up on Jamie Carroll's fly to right, made a face-first dive at home plate and was called safe by Tim McClelland. Their 14th win in 15 games sent the Rockies to the playoffs and on their way to their first pennant.
