Before Jim Thome stepped into the batter’s box in the bottom of the ninth inning on Saturday, Phillies closer Jonathan Papelbon reportedly offered $5,000 to anyone who could deliver a walk-off win against Tampa Bay’s Jake McGee. Thome proceeded to launch a ball into the left field seats. After celebrating with his teammates at the plate, Thome can be seen telling Papelbon that he wants his check. [Deadspin]
