Ryan Roberts Hits Walk Off Grand Slam, Mimics Kirk Gibson, Takes His Jersey Off, And Keeps Diamondbacks In Hunt For Home Field

With home field advantage for the divisional series of the playoffs still on the line, the Diamondbacks turned toward their lucky charm Micah Owings in the top of the 10th inning vs. the Dodgers. Sure, he gave up five runs and all but guaranteed a loss, but more astute and optimistic observers knew he hadn’t lost a game yet this season (7-0) and it wasn’t about to happen Tuesday night.

Thanks to a six-run bottom half of the 10th inning, capped off by knucklehead Ryan Roberts‘ walk off grand slam, Owings picked up the win!

Roberts managed to throw in a Kirk Gibson famous home run trot imitation while jogging around the bases and took off his jersey before getting mauled at home plate. Diamondbacks’ announcer Daron Sutton couldn’t believe anything before his eyes, so much that he asked Milwaukee for confirmation.

The D-Backs trail the Brew Crew by a game for home field.
