Jimmy Rollins’ Walk-Off Home Run in .gifs
Jimmy Rollins was the hero on Saturday night as the Phillies walked off 5-4 winners against the Miami Marlins. Despite Giancarlo Stanton‘s efforts, hitting two home runs — including one that went 470 feet — and knocking in three runs, the bullpen was able to keep the Phillies in the game in the eighth, ninth, and tenth innings before Rollins took Dan Jennings deep for a solo home run.
Rollins, as usual, added some style to the event. He knew he had hit a home run, so he flipped his bat towards the dugout and yelled something towards the dugout and/or at a fan. In the post-game interview, Rollins said that teammate Marlon Byrd had said something to him in the dugout and that a fan had been yelling at him, so he wanted to shut him up.
Rollins has quietly gotten off to a good start this season. Including tonight’s game, he’s slashing .316/.395/.553 in 43 plate appearances.
