1986 NLCS, Game 7: Mets vs. Astros

In a series packed with drama, the Mets won Game 3 on a walk-off home run by Lenny Dysktra and Game 5 on a 12th-inning single by Gary Carter. In Game 6, the Mets trailed 3-0 entering the top of the ninth, but rallied for three runs to force extra innings. Both teams scored in the 14th and the Mets scored three in the 16th. But the Astros chipped away with two of their own to make the score 7-6 before Jesse Orosco looped a slider past Houston's Kevin Bass, Orosco's 54th pitch in relief. The strikeout ended the game and won the pennant for an exhausted Mets club.
