Tough tough Joe Panik

Seven in a row, thanks to this guy Joe Panik. He gets hit in the head in the 5th, driving in a run, then smashes a 3-run homer in the 9th. Wow

 From mlb.com --

 

ST. PETERSBURG -- Jaff Decker backed up to the right-field wall like he had a chance to catch the ball that was crushed off Joe Panik's bat. The Giants had struggled to find a big hit most of the day. But they got a two-out hit to tie it in the eighth and won their seventh straight game on Panik's three-run homer in the ninth in a 6-4 win over the Rays.
"For Panik," Giants manager Bruce Bochy said before pausing, "it's hard to get a bigger hit than that."

FROM AP --


ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Joe Panik bounced right back up and ran to first base in the fifth inning after a pitch struck his helmet. Four innings later his 395-foot drive into the right field seats helped the San Francisco Giants stay hot.
Panik had a career-high four RBI, including a tiebreaking, three-run homer in the ninth inning that sent the Giants to their seventh straight win, 6-4 over the Tampa Bay Rays on Saturday."
"Joe's so steady," Giants manager Bruce Bochy said. "He's so even-keel, day to day, he slows the game down as well as anybody. He's got a great pace to his swing and his defense and he's very calm out there."
Panik's two-out drive off Alex Colome (1-2) helped lift the NL West leaders to a season-high 17 games over .500.
