Continuity mistake: In the top of the ninth, as Harris struggles with his control a shot of the scoreboard shows both teams have 2 runs, 7 hits and no errors. Harris then walks the next batter to load the bases, and Vaughn is brought in to face Heywood, whom he strikes out. Thus the Yankees should still have 7 hits heading into the bottom of the ninth. Yet when the scoreboard is shown as the Duke comes in shows the Yankees with 9 hits. This means they somehow picked up 2 hits in between the half-inning, which is impossible. The only way to gain hits like that is if the scorekeeper changed two errors from earlier in the game into hits, but the scoreboard indicated there no errors were ever made in the game.

Continuity mistake: The batting order in the one-game playoff is Taylor-Dorn-Cerrano (as seen in the 7th), with Hayes batting before Taylor (as seen in the 9th). Cerrano hits the homer with two outs in the 7th, and Hayes is shown batting with nobody on, and two outs in the 9th. If they faced the minimum, Hayes would've been up with only one out (#5 batter gets the third out in the 7th, 6-7-8 batters get out in the 8th, and the #9 batter gets one out before Hayes). There's no way they could've gone through the line-up again without scoring a run. The furthest they could've gotten was the #8 batter (two spots before the leadoff Hayes) coming to bat in the 9th with two outs and nobody on. (01:23:30)
