Shot Of The Night is Off Base Percentage's toast to a player who had an exceptionally good or bad night. There's always a reason to drink.
The shot of the night waited until all of the games were over but it didn't have to. Tonight's shot of the night is a Curtain Call: 1 part Jagermeister® herbal liqueur, 1 part Midori® melon liqueur, 1 part Jack Daniel's® Tennessee whiskey. I'm pretty sure after a couple of those you'd be under the curtain or wearing it as a dress. Tonight's shot is in honor of Carlos Gonzalez.
CarGo had a pretty good night at the plate for the Rockies. He went 4-4 and also had a sac fly. Not only did Gonzalez hit the walk off homer in the 9th, the home run completed his cycle. If I wasn't so lazy to do the research, it seems like we're having an absurd amount of cycles, no hitters, perfect games, golden sombreros and platinum sombreros this season. It's probably all due to random chance but I prefer to believe it's some kind of baseball voodoo. I may also have been in New Orleans for too long.
Honorable Mention: Ryan Zimmerman
Zimmerman went 2-4 with a home run. But guess what that home run was? You're right. It was a walk off in bottom of the 9th. I should really stop putting the answer to my little quizzes in the title of my posts. I alluded it to it early in my trade roundup earlier but I think I'm jumping on the Nationals bandwagon. I can have an AL and NL team right?
