Russell Martin made a juggling catch from behind the plate to save Ryan Borucki's strikeout
Tuesday night was just another Blue Jays game for 13-year veteran
Although the Astros won, 7-0, Borucki kept the Blue Jays close while he was in the game. Martin guided him through six innings of two-run ball, and in the bottom of the fourth, he managed to nab an extra strikeout for the rookie.
Not to worry: Russell came to the rescue.
Those are some great reflexes, especially considering Martin had never caught such a strike. "I don't ever remember in my whole life ever having a play like that," he said to MLB.com's Alyson Footer. "I just felt it go off the inside part of the glove. I saw it hang up there for a second. I just threw my glove up there and it ended up in my glove.
"I don't think the roll was necessary, but I threw that in there too. We'll take it."
Martin might be 35, but he can clearly still move quite well behind the plate.
