After taking a curveball at 73 on the outside corner, Vasquez hung a 63 mph curveball high on the outer part of the plate. 420 feet or so later, Vasquez knew he had made a mistake.

Some help from the umps ensures Longoria's Postseason OBP at 1.000. 

Overall, Longoria is kind of good, and the second player to hit two home runs in his first two playoff at-bats after Gary Gaetti.
