Derek Holland made a great behind-the-back grab and then tossed his glove to first base
White Sox starting pitcher
One problem: The ball had taken up permanent residence in Holland's glove, forcing him to improvise.
His glove flip to first forced
Holland talked to MLB.com's Fabian Ardaya after the game:
"[The glove]'s broken. I had to switch it up. That was a cool play, but I'm more worried about getting the wins and losses. It's cool to get a nice play like that, especially against a guy like Cano -- sorry, buddy -- but the main thing is we want to get the wins. And today was just not one of those days."
Had he done it before in a game?
"I've never done that, actually. When I caught it, I felt like it was heavier than normal, when you catch a ball, so that's where I was freaking out a little bit, what to do. I just ran over and gave him my glove. It went right through the web, it was stuck in between it, broke the lacing. Just got stuck. I saw (Jon) Lester do that before, too. Just one of those things, it's cool."<o:p>
