SPORTS JUNKIES -- CHECK OUT GUTSMACK

 

 

It’s not exactly a secret that Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Mookie Betts is a great fielder and a great batter. But just in case anyone forgot, he made sure to remind everyone in today’s game.

 

During the bottom of the second inning against the Pittsburgh Pirates, Julio Urias was on the mound for the Dodgers with the game tied at 1-1 and runner Erik Gonzalez on third base. With a 2-2 count on batter Ka’ai Tom, Urias threw a low ball that Tom hit hard for a line drive into Betts’ area.

 

Betts almost effortlessly grabbed the line drive out of the air for an out but moved quickly. Gonzalez was making a line for home. Betts spun around and threw it to home plate, where catcher Austin Barnes tagged Gonzalez for an out. The incredible double play earned a noticeable round of applause from the Pirates home crowd.
