Wil Myers Opening Day Includes A Mad Dash Around The Bases
Wil Myers came to the plate in the bottom of the eighth inning with pinch-runner Brandon Guyer at first base and the Rays leading 6-2. He tapped a ball back to pitcher Jeremy Jeffress who wheeled and threw wildly down the right field line. Guyer came in to score and Myers charged around second and toward third. Jose Bautista‘s throw escaped third baseman Brett Lawrie and Myers scampered home to give the Rays an 8-2 lead.
When asked if he could have run another 90 feet he chuckled and said no “I was gassed, that was it, right there.”
