Rookie's walk-off home run in 9th inning lifts Arizona Diamondbacks over San Diego Padres

As he rounded third base, a string of thoughts ran through Seth Beer’s mind late Thursday night. Moments earlier, his home run had landed five rows deep in right field, giving the Diamondbacks an improbable — almost ridiculous — walk-off victory over the San Diego Padres, and Beer flashed back to his youth. He thought of watching highlights of walk-offs on MLB Network. He thought of posters he had hanging on his wall of victorious celebrations. He knew what...
