In Game 3 of the ALCS, Tony Kemp came through with a tremendous play in the field for the Houston Astros. In Game 4, he let his bat do the talking.
The Astros were trailing for most of the early part of Wednesday’s game against the Boston Red Sox, partially due to one controversial reason. But they tied it up in the third.
In the fourth inning, Kemp stepped into the box and put the champs ahead.
The unlikely home run from Houston’s No. 9 hitter drew a varied reaction on Twitter.
Tony Kemp? Sure, why the hell not.

I have been praying for Tony Kemp to hit a homerun. There isn't a greater guy out there. 4-3 Astros!

We were thinking that Kemp might get on and use his speed to get around the bases. But in the postseason, expect the unexpected.
