Yonder Alonso’s Game-Tying Home Run (Video)
If you missed the late action in Major League Baseball yesterday, you probably missed this clutch, two out, game-tying solo home run by Padres first baseman Yonder Alonso:
This was just Rafael Soriano’s second blown save of the season, as he has enjoyed a lot of success thus far in 2014.
Entering Saturday’s game, Soriano had a 0.78 ERA, 0.96 WHIP and a .169 BAA to go along with 12 saves in 13 opportunities.
This was Yonder Alonso’s fifth home run of the season. He has never developed the power scouts throughout the league thought he would, but then again he plays in Petco so maybe we shouldn’t judge him too hard.
After all, there haven’t been many power-hitters on the Padres not named Adrian Gonzalez in the past few years.
