Beyond The Scores – April 22, 2015
Jays fielder Kevin Pillar has been making quite a name for himself in the last couple of weeks. Last week, vs the Tampa Bay Rays Pillar was touted for possibly having the catch of the year for climbing the wall at the Rogers Centre and robbing Tim Beckman of what should have been a home run. Last night vs the Orioles, he turned two in beautiful fashion, making a head first diving catch and then popping up to throw Chris Davis out at second. MLB.com tweeted out video of the play, and even suggested renaming left field after Pillar. Maybe he’s making up for the 2 weeks he missed after suffering a strained oblique…caused by a sneeze in March. Either way, great plays.
