Sometimes when you’re celebrating a walk-off home run, you just lose it and anything can happen. There is no sense of order and nothing is out-of-bounds or off-limits during those beautiful moments of elation. And for Jonathan Papelbon, he decided to get a little touchy-feely on Wednesday night.
When Ryan Howard hit a 3-run walk-off home run for the Phillies to beat the Rockies, Pap was so excited he clutched catcher Carlos Ruiz by the meat of the young man’s chest. It was beautiful. We’ll call it a lucky Chooch boob grab.
Below is video of Howard’s big walk-off blast:
Howard now has 9 home runs and 34 RBIs on the season. Papelbon got his first win thanks to the homer, and he also racked up his first bosom clutch as well. Pretty good all-around evening for the Phils.
