His team was down by three runs in the bottom of the ninth with 2 outs and bases loaded, and he hits a slammer. Can you think of a better high for a batter?

If there are fewer than 2 outs, you can at least get a sac fly or the next guy can get the job done, but, like A-Rod's off Chris Ray where he was down to his last strike, that was it and the batter came through.

Zaun/Percival could be argued a toss up and Bennett/Howry are both marginal players.

There doesn't really seem to be an example of a so-so hitter nailing an above average pitcher.
