Tuesday night marked Astros rookie Jonathan Villar's eighth career game in Major League Baseball. He had four stolen bases coming in, but something tells me this is going to be a bit more memorable than the previous four:

One could call those veteran instincts, as Wei-Yin Chen had no clue what Villar was doing at third base. Then again, if Villar gets thrown out, the narrative is that he's just a rookie being reckless, right?

Bottom line, that was a hell of an exciting play from an exciting young rookie. Well done, Mr. Villar.
