Kolten Wong Turns Jumping Double Play

Kolten Wong turns a pretty double play on a Pablo Sandoval ground ball.

Kolten Wong turned a double play tonight that was as dope as it was unlikely. And, actually, there are two reasons why this is an unlikely double play. First, it's just a great play by Kolten Wong. He's got to run to the bag with the runner bearing down on him, catch the ball, then run through the bag, twist, and throw a Jeets-like jump throw to first. Watching it in real time you felt like he was just going to take the one out and hang on to the ball. Then he jumped.


It's also unlikely in that anyone other than Pablo Sandoval would probably have been safe at first.
