Adrian Beltre hit a single on a pitch that was literally above eye level

Adrian Beltre is a man of many unconventional talents. He's an excellent groundskeeper; his dance moves are unparalleled; he makes for a fantastic mime. Above all, however, Beltre excels at one thing: hitting pitches that no one else would even consider swinging at.

Just this past Friday, he was clobbering a pitch over his head from one knee. And, during Saturday's 8-5 win over the Angels, he returned for his second act. He wasn't on a knee this time, but he made up for it by blooping a single to left on a pitch that could charitably be described as "eye-level and six inches outside":
