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.
Since 2008, Uribe has hit 13 HR's off right handed sliders, and Madson's was the only one to go opposite field. In fact, Uribe had hit no opposite field HR's at all since 2008 before facing Madson in Game 6. And it was the second HR that Madson allowed to a RHB on a slider since 2008.
