GIF: Torii Hunter hits into 1-4-5-3 double play
Making an out on the bases is inexcusable in many cases, but making two on the same play? Eek. Andy Dirks and Torii Hunter goofed on Thursday.
There are plenty of ways to waste a leadoff double, but few are as creative as what the Tigers did in the third inning on Thursday night. With Andy Dirks at second, Torii Hunter managed to hit into a 1-4-5-3 double play. Here's the play:
Two mistakes here. First, Dirks tried to go to third on a ball hit back to the pitcher. Second, Hunter took way too big of a turn around first base. Props to the Royals for actually turning the double play, but the Tigers didn't exactly make it tough for them.
That, my friends, is the rare double TOOTBLAN (thrown out on the bases like a nincompoop).
