Hunter Pence Goes Deep, Game 1
Four batters into the 2014 World Series, San Francisco led 1-0—until Pence smacked a full-count heater from KC starter James Shields over the CF wall. Just like that, the Royals faced a 3-0 hole before even coming to bat.
Josh Willingham's Last Stand, Game 7
KC's veteran slugger has said 2014 would be his 12th and final season; Royals manager Ned Yost made sure to get Willingham a couple of at-bats (he struck out as a PH in both Games 1 and 2). He hit 195 homers with the Marlins, Nats, A's, Twins and Royals—two of which were grand slams in the same 2009 game.
