A home run almost as dramatic as the Bay and Youkilis homers
Believe it or not, there WERE some other games going on tonight other than Red Sox/Yankees.
And man, Shane Victorino's 2 out grand slam turning a 3-2 Marlins lead into a 6-3 Phillies lead has to be one of the most shocking hits you'll see this year.
The Marlins, looking to put some early room between themselves and the defending champs, would have made a tremendous statement. Instead they have given the Phillies something to cheer about.
I have a soft spot in my heart for these Marlins and I hope their 11-1 start wasn't a total fluke.
But I also love Victorino. His nickname, The Flying Hawaiian, is by far the best in the league.
Get your act together Marlins. These Pennsylvania teams are beating you up!
