With the Boston Red Sox leading 3-0 entering the top of the 3rd inning in Game 5 of the ALCS last night, David Ortiz hit what appeared was going to be a sure hit, but out of no where former Red Sox shortstop Jose Iglesias came from another planet to make an insane running catch.
Here’s the play.
This is one of the best plays made by a shortstop in years, only adding to Iglesia’s reputation as the best defensive shortsop in the game. The Red Sox would get the last laugh though holding on for a 4-3 to take a 3-2 lead in the best of 7 series.
The Red Sox will have a chance to clinch the pennant in Fenway Park this Saturday.
