Rays Turn Garbage Into Gold, Save Run

VIA FOXSports:

After the White Sox’s Willy Garcia doubled to right field and the  Rays began to play hot potato with the baseball on Thursday night, he  set his sights on a Little League home run. And he almost pulled it off.

The abbreviated version of the action: Shortstop Tim Beckham couldn’t  handle center fielder Kevin Kiermaier’s throw, third baseman Evan  Longoria couldn’t handle Beckham’s throw and Garcia just kept running


In the end, it was left fielder Peter Bourjos who put a stop to the madness for the Rays.

Incredibly, there was just one error on the play – a throwing error  charged to Kiermaier – and apparently the Rays had Garcia right where  they wanted him all along.

That’s a whole lot of effort for one out, but it paid off for Tampa Bay,  which won the game 7-5. Just how the Rays drew it up, indeed
