Kendrys Morales scores with incredible slide (Video)
Kendrys Morales pulled out the phantom slide move on Russell Martin Friday, and it worked to perfection.
During the top of the first inning of the Royals’ game against the Blue Jays in Toronto, new KC acquisition Ben Zobrist laced a single to right field. It scored Eric Hosmer easily, but Morales looked like he was going to be dead meat at the plate. That was until he pulled out the fancy slide by applying the breaks, causing Martin to go flying by:
Jose Bautista couldn’t believe that he didn’t get an assist for that perfect throw home.
Here’s the play with less Rex Hudler:
