GIF: Oswaldo Arcia was perhaps not expecting a pinch-runner

By Dayn Perry | Baseball Writer

In the ninth inning of Tuesday night's White Sox-Twins tilt (CHW 6, MIN 3, 10 innings), Minnesota outfielder Oswaldo Arcia, after drawing a walk, was lifted for pinch-runner Aaron Hicks. As you'll soon see, this came as a bit of a surprise to Mr. Arcia ...

Note that the right hand instinctively protects the chin while at once coiling to become the implement of a stinging cross.

No one gets the drop on Oswaldo Arcia, see? Least of all an ill-intentioned pinch-runner.
