David Freese’s performance, which included going 2-for-5 with a ninth-inning game-tying triple and a walk-off homer in the 11th, was named the #5 greatest World Series moment. The other four highlights that topped Freese are no-brainers.
1. 1960 WS Gm7: Bill Mazeroski wins the 1960 World Series for the Pirates with a walk-off home run against the Yankees in Game 7.
