Matt Williams has so impressed his newest fans that they probably don't care that he has been struggling since spending 11 weeks recovering from a broken foot. Williams became a favorite of Moran Masai tribesmen when they learned he had donated an autographed jersey and other equipment to a Merced, Calif., group holding an auction to raise money for a medical mission to Kenya this summer. As thanks, the tribe sent Williams a hunting spear, which he considered using at the plate. "Nothing else is getting me on base," he said. On Friday, Williams used a regular bat—and perhaps another Masai gift, a ceremonial good-luck wildebeest's tail—to hit a two-run homer in a 6-5 defeat of the New York Mets.
