slump buster
 n.— «D’Antona, for his part, had tried a time-honored method of busting out of his slump. He’d been flirting with a couple of girls he’d met, and his teammates ragged him about it, urging him to go for it with one or the other.…Jamie had gone for it with C——, and she’d said yes, and the whole team knew about it. He had two walks in the game and hit the ball hard twice, one of them a bullet to left-center for a standing double. Down the rightfield line, the bullpen guys went crazy. “Slump BUSTER!” they yelled.» —by Jim Collins The Last Best League Apr. 1, 2004. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
