Torii Earning His Wings

Wow. Somebody other than Vladimir Guerrero can hit a clutch, walk-off grand slam?

Didn't see that one coming.

Especially since the Angels had twice left the bases loaded earlier in the game. This had the making of one of those typical Angels games where they had around 20 hits and two runs to show for it.

But having a guy like Torii Hunter in the lineup gives a little bit more believability to a potential comeback. For too long, teams have just spent the final innings pitching around Vlade because he was the only guy who put fear into opposing teams.

Nice win, lets hope Frankie Rodriguez and Howie Kendrick can come back soon.

Hunter said when he was going to have the Rally Monkey on his side when he signed with the team.

Doesn't that first bit imply that Vlad can hit a clutch, walk-off grand slam? Because right now, Vlad can't hit much of anything.
