Josh Naylor makes baseball history in wild finish Monday night

More than 20,000 players have appeared in a major league game in the sport’s history. No player ever had a game like the one Josh Naylor enjoyed in Monday night’s wild, comeback win over the Chicago White Sox.

With two outs in the top of the ninth inning, Josh Naylor stepped to the plate with the bases loaded and the Guardians staring at a four-run deficit. It’s the type of scenario just about every kid dreamed up in the backyard at one time or another.

Naylor crushed a score-tying grand slam. Two batters earlier, the White Sox had a 99.7 percent win probability. That came before Jose Ramirez walked and Owen Miller singled to extend the game long enough for Naylor’s grand slam.
