2010 Top Moments

Top Moment #13: Rollins Walks It Off

Jimmy Rollins spent significant time on the disabled list in 2010.  In just 88 games, Rollins finished with a disappointing .243 batting average.  But on June 23, Rollins was the hero.

Starters Kyle Kendrick and Cleveland’s Jake Westbrook each struggled, resulting in a game that went back and forth.  Kendrick had many troubles in 2010, and this game was no exception.

In the first inning, Shin-Soo Choo homered to put the Indians on the board.  Jayson Werth’s home run tied the game at two, but the Indians jumped back in front.  Raul Ibanez gave the Phillies the lead with a RBI double, but Choo struck again with another blast.  In the seventh inning, Brian Schnieder’s clutch home run tied the game at five.

In the ninth inning, the Indians threatened against J.C Romero.  With a runner on third, Rollins made a fantastic diving stop, but failed to make the throw home, resulting in an error.  The Indians took the lead, but Rollins made up for his mistake.

With a runner on base, Rollins cranked a drive just inside the right field foul pole.  The exciting 7-6 victory came in dramatic fashion, one of several walk-offs in the 2010 season.  Rollins’ first career walk-off home run came in his second day back from the disabled list.  At the time, it was not only a big win, but hope that Rollins would begin a hot streak.

    Brooks, I’m way past ready- He’s in his contract year so you know Jimmy will be ready. That was one of my favorite McCarthy calls last year.
