Milwaukee Brewers shortstop Orlando Arcia scored from first base on a ball that never left the infield back on July 3rd. It was a crazy play that occurred because the Baltimore Orioles forgot how to catch a runner in a rundown.

Relief pitcher Brent Suter hit a slow roller to shortstop, and beat the throw towards first. Arcia blew past second base and over slid third base, but Orioles third baseman Manny Machado was unable to get the tag down on the speedy 22-year old before he stood up and headed towards home plate. After a couple of turns, Milwaukee’s shortstop got around the catcher as he safely slid into home.
The Brewers won the first game of the series 8-1 and ended up sweeping Baltimore in three games.

Insert obligatory “Little League” joke here…
Like, why is the catcher so far up the line with a runner on?
