In the third inning of the Rays-Indians AL wild-card game on Wednesday night, Delmon Young took the first pitch from an up-until-then dominant Danny Salazar and did this to it ... 

That's a rip. That's also Young's ninth postseason home run in 107 ABs. He owns a career OPS+ of 98 in the regular season (in other words, not good for a player with negative defensive value), but he came into the wild-card game with a career postseason slash line of .264/.322/.538.  

So clutch god or the small sample size at work? The latter!
