Comebacks for the ages
« on: May 17, 2010, 05:18:24 pm »
Today, in Big Ten play, Michigan fell behind Northwestern 14-0, and WON in the 10th, 15-14, on a walk-off homer!

Can anyone recall a bigger comeback at any level of baseball?

Giants-Dodgers in the early 70's.  LA up 10-0 in the 9th.  SFscored 11 in the bottom of the 9th to win.

Well, that's not a bigger deficit, but it sure was a more sudden comeback!  Michigan trailed 14-0 after 2.5, so had plenty of outs to recover.

That was the amazing part of it. 

I can imagine the Michigan players and fans going crazy at the end of the game.  I have never heard of overcoming that big a deficit.
