Mangled Metaphor

La Quinta Inn is running a radio ad that talks about John Q Salesman staying at La Quinta on a business trip. As a result of getting a good night's sleep, the next morning, when he makes his sales pitch, he "knocks it out of the park."

I'm not sure how a pitcher hits his own pitch out of the park, but assuming he could, having your pitch result in a home run is the worst possible result. Perhaps the ad is meant as a warning?
