For the home team, the collapse came at the hands of the Philadelphia Phillies, who scored the game-tying and go-ahead runs on an 8th-inning fielding error by second baseman Anderson Hernandez.
After taking a seemingly insurmountable lead out of the outfield turn, Teddy hit the home stretch, stopped and keeled over.
With Teddy on his knees and members of the Nat Pack rushing to his aid, George, Tom and Abe raced by, with Abe narrowly claiming the victory.
A well deserved honor!
