In the ninth inning, Royals announcers couldn’t believe their eyes:
“Unbelievable! Are you kidding me?! No way you just whip that out in a one-run game in the bottom of the ninth inning. Infante and Escobar have a nice chemistry going up the middle and when you play together for so many games this is what happens,” said Steve Physioc. “When you’ve got an arm like that; look at that perfect timing!”
“He flips it right there….. It’s beautiful!”
Fans and sports entities everywhere were equally amazed and lit up social media.
In a vote on social media, Sports Center asked America’s baseball fans to vote on the best defensive play, giving them two choices: •Omar Infante glove flip to Escobar •Brandon Phillips behind back to Suarez. Of course, when America spoke and chose the Royals, there were some discontent fans, claiming once again that the votes were rigged by Royals fans.
