Video: Ender Inciarte dekes Carlos Ruiz to complete a double play

6 Comments

Braves outfielder Ender Inciarte was playing only his third game since returning from the disabled list, but he has already made an impact. With Phillies catcher Carlos Ruiz on first base, Freddy Galvis sent a fly ball to Inciarte in right field. Inciarte acted like he was having trouble picking up the ball in the Atlanta sky — a common problem at Turner Field — then quickly collected himself, caught the ball, and fired to first base to double off Ruiz.

Despite Inciarte’s defensive wizardry, the Braves still lost 3-2 to the Phillies on Tuesday night. The Braves have now lost five games in a row and sit with a 7-24 record.

Former major league outfielder Carl Crawford has been arrested in Texas on a domestic violence charge, TMZ reports. The charge was designated as “assault fam/house mem impede breath circulate,” suggesting that Crawford allegedly choked someone. Crawford surrendered to the Harris County Sheriff’s Office on Thursday. The alleged incident occurred in May.

Crawford was in the news last week as well when two people — a 25-year-old woman and a five-year-old boy — were found dead at his home in Houston. The boy reportedly had trouble breathing and the woman jumped in to help him.

Crawford, who owns a record label called 1501 Certified Entertainment, posted a message on Instagram about the incident:

There will likely be more information brought to light about Crawford’s alleged domestic violence incident in the coming days. It is unclear if there are any common factors between the domestic violence incident and the pool incident.
