Hamilton reached first base on an infield single. He might have been out — it looked close — but he was called safe. He took off on the exceedingly slow-working Dice-K on the second pitch. But Mets catcher Juan Centeno gunned him down.
Probably worth noting that while Dice-K is a slow worker, once he finally comes set and goes to the plate, he’s not particularly slower in terms of windup and stuff as anyone else. It does feel weird, though, that the fastest man this side of The Flash was tossed while Dice-K was pitching.
Hats off to Juan Centeno, though.
