Keon Broxton became the second Brewer in three days to Houdini his way out of a rundown

Just two days ago, Orlando Arcia baffled the baseball world when he managed to score from first on a seemingly innocuous grounder -- thanks to a little cunning, a lot of guile and one of the most improbable rundown escapes you'll ever see:

Keon Broxton saw all of the above, thought to himself and responded, "My turn." During Wednesday's 4-0 win over the Orioles, Broxton appeared to get picked off first base -- but that was all part of his plan:

After the game, Broxton confirmed that he had indeed gotten some inspiration from Arcia. As he told's Carson Mason: "Yeah, I picked up some tips from him the other day. Just stick your move and don't get touched."
Broxton also homered and played some spectacular defense as part of a stellar all-around night. More importantly, however, he may have touched off a season-long game of baserunning H-O-R-S-E in which several Brewers stage increasingly elaborate and daring escapes.
