The World Series has been won in the bottom of the ninth of game seven twice. In 1960 Bill Mazeroski's home run led the Pirates past the Yankees, in a game where the Yankees scored two in the top of the ninth to tie it. The Yankees were the victims again in 2001. This time the Yankees took a lead into the bottom of the ninth, but the Arizona Diamondbacks scored two off of the previously perfect Mariano Rivera to win it. There were also three World Series won by the home team in extra innings of game seven. The Washington Senators beat the New York Giants 4-3 in 12 innings in game seven in 1924, with Walter Johnson throwing 4 scoreless innings in relief to get his only World Series win thanks to 4 scoreless in relief. The Senators moved to Minnesota and changed their name to the Twins, and became the next team to win the World Series in extra innings in game seven, in 1991. Jack Morris went all ten innings for the 1-0 win. In 1997 the Marlins tied the Indians at 2 in the bottom of the ninth, and then won it in the bottom of the 11th. Finally, the Red Sox beat the Giants 4 games to 3 in the 1912 World Series, going into the bottom of the 10th down by one, but scoring 2 off of Christy Matthewson to win it. That game was considered Game 8, as Game 2 ended in a tie when it was called for darkness after 11 innings.
