The headline gives you an idea of what happened in the top of the third inning, but it lacks a little context. With two outs and two strikes, Yovani Gallardo threw a slider to Justin Upton. After the pitch, Gallardo started walking off the mound. The infield started to walk off the field. Outfielders began to jog. Upton's internal monologue started with, "Welp." But it was called a ball.
The pitch in question is #5. It wasn't really on the fringes of the strike zone like pitch #4 -- it was just a strike. On the next pitch, Upton launched a home run to the opposite field.
If the Brewers lose by a single run, if their first trip to the NLCS in 30 years is cancelled, that pitch will become the story. Well, it should be co-story, at least. The other story should be that Justin Upton is a freak who is just getting started. He's a 24-year-old with unbelievable athleticism, bat control, and patience. Dude's scary.
