Rockies Game 163 Print
The 2007 National League wild-card tie-breaker game was a one-game extension to Major League Baseball's 2007 regular season, played between the San Diego Padres and Colorado Rockies of the National League's West Division to determine the NL wild card. It was played at Coors Field on October 1, 2007.
The game remained tied until the top of the 13th inning when Padres outfielder Brian Giles singled off of Jorge Julio and scored on a home run by Scott Hairston. Ramón Ortiz relieved Julio and no further runs scored in the inning, but the Padres entered the bottom of the 13th with an 8–6 lead. The Padres brought in Trevor Hoffman to secure the game and a wild-card victory. However, Hoffman blew the save, allowing doubles to Matsui and Tulowitzki and a triple to Holliday which tied the game 8–8. Hoffman then intentionally walked Todd Helton leaving baserunners at first and third base. Carroll then hit a line drive to right fielder Brian Giles. Holliday tagged up at third and slid headfirst on a close play at home plate. Home plate umpire Tim McClelland ruled Holliday safe on the sacrifice fly, and the Rockies won the game 9–8.
