Base-running madness in the Yankees-Orioles game

24 Comments

I was watching the Yankees-Orioles game last night as this play happened and still had to re-watch the video a few times afterward just to make sure I realized everything that went on.

It’s pure madness, including Carlos Beltran “stealing home” as a throw bounces off his helmet, Bud Norris acting like he’s never played baseball before, and two Yankees runs scoring on what was a botched hit-and-run attempt.

Beltran and Chase Headley were both credited with stolen bases, Norris and Manny Machado were both credited with errors, and the Orioles ended up blowing out the Yankees anyway.
