VIDEO: Mets' Ruben Tejada, Daniel Murphy turn stellar double play
Consider what follows -- a 6-4-3 turn by Ruben Tejada and Daniel Murphy of the Mets -- to be your double play of the night.
The Mets wound up beating the Cardinals by the narrow margin of 2-0 on Monday, so the double play that follows was indeed an important one. In reality, though, it could've been the first mercy-rule game in MLB history, and this bit of baseball artifice by Ruben Tejada and Daniel Murphy would still be worth your adoration and precious gifts ...
So what was more spectacular, Tejada's diving snare and shovel or Murphy's pivot and bare-paw throw?
Yes, is the answer.
