Player Scores From 2nd Base on Tag-up

With the Orioles off tonight, I was watching my second favorite team (the White Sox.)

In the top of the 1st inning, Desmond Jennings scored on a sacrifice fly ...... from 2nd base.

Nobody did anything wrong, either. The ball was hit all the way to the wall, and Adam Eaton made a running, leaping catch, landing on the ground. With the ball hit that deep, combined with the fact that Eaton was on his back after making the catch, and with Jennings' blazing speed, it was actually well-played, both by the defense, and by the base-runner.

A rarity in baseball.

****************************************************

1) Ben Zobrist doubled to deep right.

2) Desmond Jennings sacrificed to catcher, Zobrist to third, Jennings safe at second on error by pitcher Andre Rienzo. Zobrist scored on error by pitcher A Rienzo.

3) Matt Joyce hit sacrifice fly to center, Jennings scored (from 2nd base.)

Here is the video.

Lying with his back against the wall, Eaton STILL managed to immediately shot-put the ball to his teammate (rightfielder Dayan Viciedo), who then fired the ball toward the infield, making the play at the plate at least somewhat close.

It's a little hard to tell from the video, but it looked to me like the RF made a weak throw to the cutoff man after Eaton alertly shoveled him the ball. In any event, a fun play to watch.

Yes.

And in addition to that, the second baseman made a bad throw home to the cathcer (off to the right, and it bounced twice.)

Better throws by Eaton's two teammates' (the rightfielder and the 2nd baseman), and they may have had an incredible double play on a bang-bang play at the plate.
