The Fresno Grizzlies' A.J. Reed crushed a walk-off homer that hit a moving truck

After making his Major League debut last year, top Astros prospect A.J. Reed began this season in Triple-A Fresno -- with Houston bringing in Carlos Beltrán, Brian McCann and more, there just wasn't much playing time to go around.
