– Hustled to 1B on a nubber down the 1B line and was safe on Happ’s throwing error.
– Hustled to 1B on a routine grounder to 3B and was safe on a throwing error.
– With Hardy on 2B in a 0-0 game, lined a single to RF, headed to 2B expecting a throw to home plate, then got caught in a rundown long enough to let Hardy score after he initially had stopped at 3B.
– Slammed into the wall in RCF trying to make a catch in a game where the O’s had a sizable lead.
The guy plays hard all the time, and I love him for that, no matter what his flaws may be.
This shows more leadership than anything he could ever say to his teammates. Also, normally I would be critical of crashing into the wall with a big lead, but he would have been able to hold up if he didn’t trip on the travesty that is Toronto’s turf.
