Encarnacion’s Big Hit

With the Reds down by 2 runs in the bottom of the 9th, Edwin Encarnacion hit a walk-off, three-run home run. It was not only the most important hit so far this year according to WPA, but also the biggest hit of Encarnacion’s career by a long shot. His previous single most important hit was a bases clearing double all the way back in September of 2005 worth .45 wins. Tonight’s home run was worth .62 wins.


Found the video: Hat tip to Brock For Broglio

  2. If only I could find a video of Jeff Brantley’s call… If anyone finds one, I’ll throw it up on the site.
