Adam Jones, 2012 Topps Heritage Black Bordered #HP45

Mariano Rivera has allowed just 67 home runs in 1,253 innings pitched in his Hall of Fame-caliber career. He had not been taken deep in New York since August 2011, and had not blown a save at home since September 2010. Those were the odds Adam Jones was facing when he took an off-target Rivera cutter out to left field in Yankee Stadium this afternoon, turning a likely 1-0 loss into a thrilling 2-1 victory. I'll remember that one for a long time.
