First of all, what the Colorado Rockies have been doing is absolutely incredible. If this team were in New York or Boston or Chicago, it would be getting mega-attention.

But to review. The Rockies have now won 20 of 21 games. They went into a 13-for-14 regular-season stretch run to force a one-game playoff game with San Diego for the wild-card spot in the National League. The Rockies won that. Then they swept the Phillies, 3-0, in the first round of the playoffs. Now, they're up three games to none against Arizona in the NLCS. One more win puts them in the World Series against either Boston or Cleveland.

And yet ... there's Matt Holliday's winning run against the Padres in that one-game playoff. I'm posting the video below because a previous video closely scrutinizing the play has been disabled. The folks at a Web site, www.hollidaynevertouchedtheplate.com, have made a pretty intense study of the play. It could become a pretty important piece of baseball history if Colorado continues this remarkable run. Here's another look.
