Haven’t posted one of these in a while – hasn’t been one to post in a while…
as a follow-up to the Cheryl/Kram/Jr. walk-off prediction and the come-from-behind (walk-off error) victory by Philadelphia’s Taney Dragons in the Williamsport LLWS here is the Voice of the IronPigs Matt Provence with a classic, emphatic walk-off homerun call courtesy of “Young Fronconstein” (TM M. Provence).
If you witness enough baseball at Lehigh Valley’s Coca-Cola Park, you know by the sound of the bat when a ball is jacked and Maikel (don’t call him Michael) Franco’s shot to left field was certainly a ‘no-doubter’!
Before we get to the Voice one final tidbit.
Phillippe Aumont with the win!
YES – that’s what it says!
Aumont pitched 2 PERFECT, stellar innings with 3 K’s and ZERO free passes.
Hold on a sec though – he threw 17 pitches – 15 of ‘em for strikes!
YES – that’s what it says!
So we’ll take Phillippe’s best outings of his recently improving year and transition to one of the best Provence calls – ever!
So the IronPigs finished the back-end of the Norfolk series taking 4 out of 5 with an exciting 4-3 “Walk-Off Assist Victory”!
A what you say?
Ken “Miles” Giles got in a bit of trouble until Tyson “ChuckHustle” Gillies threw out the tying run at home to end the game and that folks is a “Walk-Off Assist Victory!
Maikel Franco’s first AAA triple and a “What Can Go Long Will Go Long” Jim Murphy HR (and a SAC fly) helped the ‘Pigs to their 4 runs.
Oh and how do you like that Chris Bootcheck with an amazing 0.75 ERA surrendering only 1 run in 12 innings thus far for Lehigh Valley.
That’s all well and good but not really what we are here for.
So without further ado…
