MILWAUKEE -- A surefire "play of the year" candidate emerged at Miller Park Wednesday night when Brewers shortstop Orlando Arcia made an unbelievably difficult and incredibly impressive throw to seal a win against the Pittsburgh Pirates.
Pittsburgh had a man on second base with two outs in the top of the ninth, down 4-3 and hoping to tie the game and possibly send it to extras. The Brewers weren't having any of that.
With John Jaso at the plate, closer Corey Knebel unloaded and Jaso hit a grounder right back at him. The rest, well, you just have to watch:
Arcia somehow managed to scoop up the ball, spin around, and throw on the run to Jesus Aguilar at first, who was nearly doing the splits. Somehow they pulled it off, and the Brewers won 4-3.
