Moment Number 4: Striking out Mike Moustakas to limit the damage in Game 3 of the 2014 World Series

This was a huge strikeout since the game could have got out of hand with another hit. The go-ahead runner just scored in the previous at-bat thanks to an RBI hit by Eric Hosmer. With another power hitting lefty due up, Lopez was left in to retire Mike Moustakas and keep the deficit at only one run. He did just that. Striking out Moustakas and getting him out in front of an off-speed pitch to end the inning.
