Bingo Tank! :D

Nicholson had hit three home runs in the opener and connected again in the seventh inning of the nightcap. Nicholson came to bat again in the eighth. The Giants were leading, 10-7. A grand slam would have given the Cubs an 11-10 lead. Ott didn't want to take the risk. Andy Pafko flied out to end the inning.

Nap Lajoie walked 43 years earlier, on May 23, 1901, against the White Sox. The Sox were ahead, 11-7, in the ninth. Fearing that Lajoie, who led the league with a .422 average, would hit a game-tying grand slam, Clark Griffth, then a pitcher-manager who was working in relief, walked Lajoie with no outs. It was the boldest move of all. The next three batters went out on ground balls and the Sox won, 11-10.

The last intentional bases-loaded pass occurred May 28, 1998. Arizona manager Buck Showalter, hanging on to an 8-6 lead, saluted Barry Bonds of the Giants when the career leader with 298 free passes came up with two outs in the ninth. This reduced the Diamondbacks' lead to 8-7. Brent Mayne hit a hard liner to right for the final out.
