Omar Infante, Alcides Escobar combine for highlight reel play (Video)
Omar Infante and Alcides Escobar combined for one heck of a defensive highlight on Tuesday night.
During the 9th inning of Kansas City’s 2-1 win over the Cleveland Indians, Infante went up the middle to the shortstop side of the field, backhanded a grounder by Roberto Perez and flipped to Escobar, who made a barehanded grab and threw on to first for the out. That was all to get the first out of the inning in a 1-run game.
Kansas City held on for the win and is now 61-38, giving them the best record in the AL by a solid margin.
