When it happened live and in full speed, Jayson Werth’s catch in the third inning yesterday didn’t look all that special, but when the broadcast slowed it down as they went to break it proved to be a rather unique grab.
Jayson Werth must have been paying attention to Old Man Moyer for all of those years because he most certainly used two hands on this catch. It was quite unconventional, however. Werth appeared to lose the fly ball in the sun and it just brushes off his glove but he somehow rather amazingly manages to still catch it with his bare hand that was positioned directly beneath his glove.
Hey, sometimes it’s better to be lucky than good.
Cliff Lee and the Phillies proved to be better on Sunday. Even if they did get a little bit of luck of their own.
