Juan Pierre legged out a walk-off infield single on Sunday afternoon to give the Phillies a wild 8-7 extra innings victory over the St. Louis Cardinals.
After setting down after the celebration, Pierre told reporters he was inspired by the fastest man on the planet, Jamaica's Usain Bolt. From beat writer Ryan Lawrence's Sulia:
"I was a little excited. I got inspired watching Usain Bolt last night. Had a chance to go through the finish line there at first base and just got excited there playing a kid's game. No matter where you are in the standings, to win a big league game is always special and I never want to take that for granted. My errant throw today led to a big inning, and to be able to, not make up for it, but to be in a position to help the team win is pretty cool."
