Actually... thinking about it I'm realising I didn't even get the strength of my own point. Fan reaction makes a sporting moment more memorable, but this is even MORE the case in baseball because only the home team can win by scoring on the last play of the game.

Generally, offense winning at the last minute is more exciting than defense winning at the last moment (a walkoff homer is exciting even if the home run itself isn't anything special, whereas the road team winning would require a spectacular catch/play at the plate/etc which is much more rare.)
