Destin Hood hit home runs No. 10 and 11 in his first two at-bats. The solo shots off of Salem's Stolmy Pimentel were no-doubt-about-it shots to left field.

But the Mobile, Al., native has reportedly been fighting knee inflammation throughout the season. Today, he appears to be favoring the knee and has not looked like he has been able to go 100 percent for balls hit his way in right field.

So his two homers have kind of a Kirk Gibson World Series feel to them, as he slowly runs around the bases after his monster home runs.

Good and bad news.
