MINNEAPOLIS -- Pete Kozma had a perfect line on Hunter Pence's routine-looking grounder, perhaps even a chance to throw home and keep the Giants from plating a run with the bases loaded and no outs showing on the AT&T Park scoreboard.
What the Cardinals shortstop hadn't seen, though, was that Pence's bat splintered as he swung, making three separate points of contact with the ball and putting some bizarre sidespin on it as it fluttered into left-center field.
More than 8 million television viewers caught it, though, thanks to FOX Sports' revolutionary video capture unit known as the Phantom Cam.
Starting with that strange, seminal moment in Game 7 of the 2012 NLCS, the super-slow-motion camera has drawn rave reviews from fans and analysts at its ability to pick up the slightest details with high-definition clarity. After an inaugural run during select Twins telecasts last year, Phantom Cam is back for this weekend's homestand against the Detroit Tigers.
