Video: Amazingly, Pierzynski Scores From First On A Groundball To Shortstop
Sports Fan Insider
(WSCR) There’s no denying A.J. Pierzynski is having an incredible year.
Jon Heyman of CBS Sports already said he belongs in the MVP discussion after putting up a batting average of .299 with a career-high 23 home runs and 67 RBIs through 94 games this season.
During yesterday’s game, Pierzynski managed to score from first base on a routine grounder to shortstop. As the 35-year-old catcher took second base, he realized no one was covering third. After jogging to third, Pierzysnki again realized no one was covering home and took off to score.
