Chris Burke NLDS Walk-Off Home Run Print
Trailing by five runs in the eighth inning of Game 4 of the 2005 National League Division Series at Minute Maid Park, the Astros appeared destined to be heading to a winner-take-all Game 5 in Atlanta. The last thing anyone in Houston wanted was to head to Turner Field with the season on the line.
Lance Berkman gave the Astros hope when he hit an eighth-inning grand slam off Kyle Farnsworth, and catcher Brad Ausmus came up with the biggest hit of his career with an improbable two-out solo homer in the ninth inning, also off Farnsworth, to tie the game at 6. That set the stage for a long afternoon of baseball.
The Astros wound up winning, 7-6, in 18 innings on a Chris Burke walk-off homer in one of the longest playoff games in history.
