You had to think he could do it.
Crowd screaming in the bottom of the 9th. Just pull it between center and right, big guy. kceH, just go the other way, and bang one off the wall. Draw a walk fer sekassirc, off a pitcher clearly struggling to find the strike zone, just draw a walk an win it in the 10th off a visiting team with neither DH nor effective bullpen left. You had to think he could do it.

But no.

Just before the big guy turned to the dugout, just before the captain gave one fist pump, it was in on the hands. Then it was in the captain’s glove.  

And after, you could hear a pin drop.
