Kendry Morales of the LA Angels of A, hits a game winning Grand Slam, then proceeds to break his leg jumping onto home plate after his trip around the bases.

Something like that was bound to happen sooner or later the way teams go at it at home plate after walk off HRs, but this one was pretty tame compared to ones I've seen in the past.

Mariners lose the game, but come out ahead in the long run on that deal.

Last season was "that kind of season." This season is just crappy baseball coupled with freak injury. (Hunter also took a shot to his hand this games as well.)

Good news - Howie Kendrick hit a three run shot in the bottom of the 9th today to beat the Mariners (sorry JJD) and DIDN'T break his leg during the celebration.

Rumor is Morales could be back this season, but not until September at the earliest. I hope this - if nothing else - forces some other folks to step up.

I can't blame Kendry for getting excited. I can, however, blame the knucklehead teammate of his (couldn't ID him on the replay) who grabbed him by the head and pushed him down when he was in mid-air, causing him to land awkwardly.

It's a freak injury, and I hope the Angels can step it up while he is out.

The same thing happened a few years ago to a Padre minor leaguer. Tagg Bozeid hit a walk-off homer in AA then blew his knee out in the celebration at the plate. It ended his season, and he never reached the majors.

Well, maybe not Fielder anymore, since popular opinion is that he's played his last game in a Brewers uniform.
