Brandon Phillips was not the only second baseman to make a great defensive play on Monday night. While Phillips literally saved his team from a loss, the Astros were up five runs when Jose Altuve made his hilariously rangy spinning throw:
Look at how far he ran to get that ball. I mean, yeah, the extra-slow Chris Iannetta was running down the line, but still. Altuve was on the other side of second base as part of the shift and he still got to the ball. Then he made a great spinning throw.
Bravo, Jose. Bravo.
