Nick Swisher proved on Thursday that in the game of baseball, it’s never too late to be a hero.
Stepping up to the plate with the bases loaded, two outs, and the Indians down 3-1 to the Angels in the bottom of the 10th inning, Swisher took Ernesto Frieri deep to right field for a walk-off grand slam. It was the first grand slam of the season for the Indians, and their first extra-innings walk-off grand slam since 1992, according to Ace of MLB Stats.
The win put the Indians a game over .500 for the season. The grand slam put Swisher at an even .200 batting average for the season. Wins all around!
Below is Tom Hamilton’s call of the grand slam:
Swing and a drive!
