  fredthebear: In the final position, Black is cramped on the dark squares. An exchange sac is out of the question because Black is already down a full rook. 28...Bg5 comes up short as White welcomes exchanges. The Black queen is tied in a knot to defend the h7 mating square and the Black rook must defend the back rank.

The dominate White knight on the sixth is about to deliver a kick in the teeth supporting a White rook advance to the 7th. If Black places his rook on the 7th, the White rook gives check on the 8th, prepared to exchange rooks on the back rank to deflect the Black queen from her defense of the h7 square. Black simply has no worthwhile move to deal with these simple White possibilities.
