Walk-offs are some of the most exciting moments that can occur during baseball games.
The home team has that advantage and has the ability to win the game in the bottom of the ninth inning or later by scoring just once to break a tie and finish things off.
On Wednesday, there were three such games that ended in this fashion.
The New York Mets completed a big comeback against the red-hot Tampa Bay Rays by winning on Pete Alonso’s home run.
The defending World Series champion Houston Astros tallied four runs in the bottom of the ninth inning to defeat the Chicago Cubs on a game-winning base-hit by Kyle Tucker.
Just north of the border, Toronto Blue Jays catcher Danny Jansen hit a three-run walk-off home run to beat the New York Yankees.
On Twitter, MLB posted a collage of photos to celebrate a wild day of walk-offs.
