Another One from Juan

In what turned out to be the deciding hit in Game One of the World Series, Juan Uribe blasted a 5th inning Darren O'Day fastball into the left field seats at AT&T Park for a 3-run HR.

O’Day started Uribe out with two sliders that ended up way outside of the zone.  He then came in on Uribe with a fastball.

Uribe's Unique HR

In Game 6 of the NLCS, Juan Uribe hit an 8th inning HR off Ryan Madson, breaking a 2-2 tie and leading the San Francisco Giants to victory over the Philadelphia Phillies.  How rare was this HR?  Let's take a look.

After retiring both Pat Burrell and Cody Ross, Ryan Madson threw Juan Uribe a first pitch slider.  Uribe went the other way with the pitch, sending it over the right field wall.
