Konerko homers, gets beaned, beats Cubs

Some moments need a lot context.  For example, by itself, this clip of Paul Konerko ripping a 2-R HR off of Jeff Samardzija in the 1st inning might seem like the prelude to a big offensive day and easy victory.  But Samardzija was actually quite sharp on this day.  One of the few times he got wild, this happened...

Which prompted this response from Philip Humber...

...Which--Robin Ventura's facial expression aside--ramped up the tension a bit.  Which made this...

...and its accompanying Jeff Samardzija facial expression, all the more satisfying.
