Matt Stairs, a former Tiger for all of about one month, pinch hit last night in the 8th inning in pivotal game three of the NLCS. He came up huge, hitting a monster 2 run home run to put the Phillies up 7-5 and eventually 3-1 in the series.
... And then, apparently, his teammates hit a home run with him.
Here is a snippet from his post game comments...
"Not that I don't feel like I'm part of the team, but when you get that nice celebration coming in the dugout and you're getting your ass hammered by guys, there's no better feeling than to have that done."
I hope he's ok to play in game four.
