9. 1993, Game 4, Toronto Blue Jays vs Philadelphia Phillies

This game wasn’t remembered for the strong level of play, but rather the sloppiness and ending. After the first inning, the Phillies were up 4-3 and after seven innings, they led 14-9.

During the eighth inning, the Blue Jays scored six runs, ending the game in a 15-14 victory over the Phillies.

10. 2001, Game 4, Arizona Diamondbacks vs New York Yankees

Yankees star player Derek Jeter obtained the name “Mr. November” during game 4 of the 2001 World Series. 

Just after midnight on Nov. 1, Jeter hit a home run into left field and led the Yankees to a victory. This memorable hit awarded him the long-remembered nickname.
