Nate the Great joins list of Splash Hits

After failing to deliver a Splash Hit in the first three months of the season, the Giants added their second Splash Hit in a week on Friday, when Nate Schierholtz blasted an R.A. Dickey pitch into the Bay on Friday.

It was the 57th Splash Hit at AT&T Park, and Schierholtz become the 14th Giants to record a Splash Hit.

Actually, it should have been Schierholtz’s second Splash Hit of the week. One of Schierholtz’s two home runs on Wednesday against the Padres hit halfway up the right-field foul pole. If it had not hit the foul pole, the ball would have landed in the bay.

All hail Nate the Great.
