See the Brewers score two runs in .35 seconds

Jul 3, 2012, 5:35 PM EDT

With runners on first and second and one out in the third inning in the game against the Marlins on Tuesday, Brewers third baseman Aramis Ramirez hit a deep fly to center that got over the head of Justin Ruggiano. It led to this scene.


What happened was that Norichika Aoki, who was on second, got deked by Ruggiano on the play. Ryan Braun, the trail runner, knew all along that it was going over Ruggiano’s head, but Aoki got held up between second and third initially.

The end result was the Brewers scoring a pair of runs in somewhere between three-tenths and four-tenths of a second. Marlins catcher John Buck almost had a play on Braun, but he was a little late with his dive to home plate.

    Don’t forget Anibal Sanchez’s great catch and double play! Been a pretty crazy game so far. Not that I’m avoiding work before the holiday..

    I believe that’s about as many runs as they scored over three days in Kansas City early in June.

      Did you know that Todd Frazier is hitting .278/.344/.562 (OPS: .906), with 8 HR, 27 RBI, 1 SB, and fWAR: 1.5?

        I fail to see the relevance, but as no discredit to your interesting statistic, I do appreciate this enlightening moment we’ve shared.

        It is my July 3rd homage to completely irrelevant responses to the topic.

    Super Urine makes him a fast runner!

      So….your argument is that he ran fast because he really, really, REALLY had to pee?

      • pinkfloydprism - Jul 3, 2012 at 7:04 PM

        Yeah, he did not want to stay on base any longer.

        Should I have said super-charged urine? Or would that be mishandling the subject?

    Reminds me of the famous play where carlton Fisk (?) tagged out two guys at home in about the same period of time.

      Yes, with the White Sox in 1985. The clip is shown on the pregame highlight reel before every White Sox home game.
