Cian Lynch's behind-the-back handpass has extended to baseball

DEEEEE- FENCE!

CINCINATTI REDS’ SECOND base man Brandon Phillips showed the value of improvisation in their MLB win over Chicago Cubs last night.

The Reds were leading 5 – 4 in the seventh inning with Cubs on bases one and two when their final hitter Jorge Soler hit a low drive towards centre field.

Phillips dived to catch and in one fluid motion lifted the ball out of his glove and sent it sailing in to mid-air, but also right in to the path of shortstop Eugenio Suarez.

The play ended the inning, denying the Cubs not only a likely leveling run but also the lead, and the Reds held out for the 5 – 4 win.

Clearly he’s been watching Munster Championship hurling this summer.
