WHAT THE!?! Kratz and Galvis CRUSH Back to Back Jacks to Walk Off Winners

WHAT THE!?! Kratz and Galvis CRUSH Back to Back Jacks to Walk Off Winners

Holy crap. That was one of the more improbable endings to a Phillies game we've ever seen. After Delmon Young worked a leadoff walk in the bottom of the ninth off of Aroldis Chapman, Charlie Manuel decided to use Cliff Lee as a pinch runner. That didn't work out real well.

Cliff Lee got picked off at first base on a total boneheaded mistake. And the Phillies awful weekend kept getting worse.

Until Erik Kratz destroyed a Chapman offering deep into the seats to tie things up at two a piece. [video]

Then Freddy Galvis blew the roof of the place by ripping a walkoff home run down the left field line. It was so damn enjoyable because -- holy crap! -- what are the odds of the Phillies winning in that bizarre fashion?

Baseball is a funny game.

BOX SCORE

PHILADELPHIA — Kurt Rawlings connected with Christopher Williams-Lopez for a 4-yard touchdown with 4:11 remaining in the game and Yale rallied for a 24-19 victory over Pennsylvania on Saturday.

Rawlings threw for 199 yards and two scores for the Bulldogs (5-1, 2-1 Ivy League), who won at Penn (2-4, 0-3) for the first time since 2007. Yale's Zane Dudek carried 12 times for 103 yards and a score.

The Quakers, who trailed 18-10 at the half, recovered a pair of fumbles in the fourth quarter to take a 19-18 lead. The first turnover led to Jack Soslow's 44-yard field goal and the second resulted in a 2-yard TD run by Tre Solomon. But Rawlings led the Bulldogs on an 11-play, 80-yard drive for the winning score.

Penn senior Justin Watson caught 10 passes for 120 yards and a 23-yard touchdown reception. It was an Ivy League record 16th career game with at least 100 yards receiving and he tied a school record with a TD catch in his sixth straight game. His 27 career scores ties the school record.
