GIF: Oswaldo Arcia was perhaps not expecting a pinch-runner
Twins outfielder Oswaldo Arcia was ready for anything. Except, maybe, the presence of Aaron Hicks as a pinch-runner.
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.
