Nick Markakis fouled off a pitch and broke a window, then ended up winning the game

He fouled off a pitch from Jumbo Diaz and, in a bit of classic schoolyard hijinks, broke a window.

Scoring the winning run for the visiting team won't endear you to Cincinnati fans, but it's part of the game. And breaking a window on a foul is clearly an accident.

Both, though?
