Salvador Perez and Alcides Escobar were as relaxed as ever catching David Wright stealing
Perez and Escobar casually catch Wright stealing
You know, one of the interesting things about this year's postseason is just how relaxed everyone seems to be.
During the NLDS, Mets pitcher Addison Reed casually snared a comebacker off the bat of Carl Crawford:
And now, in World Series Game 1, Royals catcher Salvador Perez combined with shortstop Alcides Escobar to pull off an extremely laid-back throw/tag to catch Mets third baseman David Wright attempting to steal in the ninth inning:
"Oh, you're stealing a base in the World Series? That's gutsy! Ah, I'll just apply this tag real quick. No big. Hey, Sal, have you ever wondered if the fountains in the outfield can be synchronized to music? Like at the end of Ocean's 11? That'd be pretty cool!"
The Royals went on to win Game 1, 5-4, in 14 innings, so that particular out proved to be relatively important. Just how important? Well, we'll see if the Mets can get back into the series in Game 2 -- coverage begins on FOX at 7 p.m. ET on Wednesday, with game time set for 8 p.m. ET.
