San Franciso Giants shortstop Brandon Crawford has 16 career home runs. He is a career .243/.309/.351 hitter. If not for the Colorado Rockies, those offensive numbers might be even lower.
In 44 games against the Rockies, Crawford is a .304/.373/.500 hitter. On Sunday he took his ownership of the Rockies to a new level, as he hit a walk-off home run to seal a 5-4 extra innings victory and a series win.
What’s more, this one goes into the bay. A splash hit! (Note: exclamation mark included to indicate absurdity, not excitement)
The Giants have a special flair for defeating their opponents in heartbreaking fashion at their home ballpark. The Rockies are often their victims, and such was the case again on Sunday.
