I also am with the tv crew.... he isn't the only left fielder in baseball who plays that into a HR. Just a weird ricochet on that one because of the entire lack of foul ground there.
Soriano would have played that to be a triple to start by just meeting the ball in the corner. Alonso wanted to limit it to two. Just caught a bad break on the bounce and came into the wall a little strong.
Climbing down from the bridge, but keeping the torch lit until Dusty's fate is settled
