Blue Jays shortstop Troy Tulowitzki thought fast to avoid being tagged in last night’s game against the Orioles. After reaching on an errant throw by Jonathan Schoop, Tulowitzki made a wide turn at first base before realizing that he wouldn’t be able to make it to second. Matt Wieters alertly picked up the ball and tried to make the tag, but Tulowitzki just hopped right over him and landed right on first base. Check it out:

Pretty clever. The best part is Tulowitzki calmly stood there afterwards like it was no big thing. Just your run-of-the-mill baseball stuff.
