– Schoop started an excellent 4-6-3 DP in the first inning, fielding a ball a couple steps to his glove side, pivoting and making a strong throw to the bag, and Hardy made a great turn with a runner bearing down on him.
– Rickard and Trumbo miscommunicated on a high fly ball, with Trumbo stepping in front to catch a ball that Rickard was camped in front of. Due to the minor collision, the runner on 1st tagged up and went to 2nd.
– The next play, a ball was hit in the 1B/2B hole and Davis made a diving try and deflected it into short CF. The runner on 2B should have scored, but ignited the 3B coach and froze at 3B. (He later scored anyway.) I think Schoop could have fielded the ball if Davis hadn’t tried for it.
– Mancini made a perfect throw from fairly deep LF to nab Gardner trying to advance to 3B on a fly out. Great tag by Manny on the play, letting the ball travel right to the body to get the runner by a couple of inches.
– There was a ball scorched towards the SS side of Manny on a hop, where Manny seemed a little slow to react and it got by him. Not an error by any means, but a play Manny makes more than half the time.
– Schoop made another nice DP, charging a squibber, tagging Sanchez as he ran onto the infield grass, and making a strong sidearm throw to 1B from a tough angle that Davis did a good job to catch.
– Trumbo made a sliding catch on a high fly to short RF, though it probably shouldn’t have been necessary for him to slide but he got a bit of a late start.
