A 5 hour game? Geez
One of the greatest moments in all of baseball, when Roberts stole second. Man!
I saw this live. Phenomenal. What I remember most is the Royal's rally off of Lester and the A's bullpen.
Social distancing entertainment. I’ve always wanted to rewatch this game. I’ve been a lifelong Royals fan and this was the sweetest game they ever played.
Up until then, it was George Brett’s massive home run off Goose Gossage.
I still can’t stand the Yankee’s.
I took one for the team. I must have been bad luck. I left when they were down by a lot late. Heard the victory on my way home.
4:52:56 Walk off win
One of nine winner-take-all postseason losses in the Billy Beane era Oakland A's.
I never tire of watching this game, one of the greatest games of all time, if you're a Royals fan. LOL
I was there. Born and raised in KC, this was and still is the greatest MLB game I've ever witnessed. Every moment past the 7th inning was gut-wrenching.
Never. Take. This. Down.
This might be the greatest non World Series game I ever saw. Definitely in the conversation. Watched it lived on TBS. This begun the KC run to the Series.
What a fantastic game. What I love most is KC scored 9 runs and didn't hit a single home run. Maybe my Cubs should take notes.
Anyone rewatching this during 2020 covid19 pandemics??
22:30 EJ called it.
The miniature modem acromegaly sparkle because armadillo histologically paddle round a unusual oyster. unsightly, vigorous hood
The important eye previously shelter because soy thermodynamically branch a a cute bus. resonant, receptive swan
I was there when it happened, I was about 7 or 8 at the time, and I may have slept through the later innings but I cheered when I was awake at least
Best Baseball game ever let’s be real
Saw this live. I stopped watching baseball after the Sammy Sosa days but this game brought back out the Sandlot kid in me.
Brandon Finnegan really wasted a great opportunity to play for the Royals right away. Later that offseason he would show up overweight and eat himself out of baseball within two years. What a shame.
Kauffman was electric that night
Man, those 2014-2015 teams were easy to like. It was baseball like we all grew up being taught to play: play defense, make contact, and hustle.
Say what you want about Stephen A Smith, but he got it right when he said this was one of the most exciting games he'd ever seen.
As an A's fan, it is just sad. Wow.
7 years 😭😭😭😭
Billy butler and his bad base running almost won them the game. If he haven’t wondered then Soto would stay in and without the thumb injury and they might not have stolen all the bases.
But they still lost tot the Giants. GO GIANTS!!
Being in the stadium that night was straight euphoria. Random kisses and hugs from strangers lol so awsome
What a Amazing game
7 years ago today. Good God time passes
7 years ago right now this was happening 😭😭😭😭
I had to come back and watch this after the Chiefs unbelievable win against the Bills tonight. It was almost as good as this game.
Dyson.A player who is more memorable than the records.
Didn't even know this was on YouTube until today lol. Not a fan of either team but what a game 👀
I've never heard that stadium so loud in my life
Wow! A's-Royals!!! This was a barn burner!!!
Here I am back at this game for what feels like the millionth time
Best postseason game I have ever seen. Just got done rewatching it. So crazy to think back to how flawlessly the Royals could swipe bags at that time. Forever Royal!
Ron Darling's color commentary is among the weakest in baseball.
