Carlos Quentin takes a header
The San Diego Padres and Toronto Blue Jays played a great game yesterday that went 11 innings before it finally finished with the Padres winning 4-3. The game could have ended a lot earlier then that if it weren’t for the heroics of left fielder Carlos Quentin. With runners on first and third with two outs, Melky Cabrera hit a shot to deep left.
Quentin took a bad route to the ball and looked like he wasn’t going to catch up to it. The hit would have easily brought in two runs and gave the Jays a healthy lead. Like I said it would have brought in two runs but Quentin had other ideas. Quentin was able to reach back and make a stumbling catch right at the warning track.
His momentum carried him all the way to the wall. Unfortunately the stumbling after the catch and the momentum him had him run into the wall, head first.
