Check out this story from tonight’s Scranton game via Chad Jenning’s blog.
Brett Gardner just scored from second on a routine ground out. Seriously.
One out. Gardner at second, Basak at first. Both runners were running on the pitch and Duncan grounded weakly to short. Gardner trotted into third easily and when the shortstop threw to first, he turned on the speed and scored without a play. Earlier in the inning, JD Closser scored on a Basak single, and later in the inning, Basak scored on a single from Juan Miranda.
I really have to see this guy in action. Too bad I am too cheap to shell out $30 for the MILB package, hopefully YES will show one of the Scranton games soon.
