Travis Ishikawa hits a walkoff 3-run home run to take the Giants to the World Series - October 16, 2014
It was the Shot That Shook the Bay.
Travis Ishikawa hit the first homer to end an NL Championship Series, a three-run drive that sent San Francisco to a 6-3 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals in Game 5 on Thursday night.
These every-other-year Giants will face the Royals in an all wild-card World Series that begins Tuesday night in Kansas City.
A journeyman who began the season with Pittsburgh, Ishikawa connected for the first game-ending home run that sent the Giants into the World Series since perhaps the most famous drive in baseball history — Bobby Thomson’s “Shot Heard ‘Round the World” in a 1951 playoff.
“It’s gratifying,” Ishikawa said. “If there’s an organization I’d want to do it for, it would be this one.” (Photo by Jason O. Watson/Getty Images)
