Criminal Sentence 36: Wherefore Art Thou, Comma?

From an article on last night's baseball game:

"With one out, Luis Castillo hit a hot shot to third where Reynolds couldn't handle it."

Commas can be tricky but I recommend you add one after "third." You're giving additional information. Another example (with correct comma):

Sam and Pam went to the prom, where they had their first kiss.
