Wil Myers Crazy Trip Around The Bases On Infield Single

Wil Myers Opening Day Includes A Mad Dash Around The Bases

Wil Myers [1] came to the plate in the bottom of the eighth inning with pinch-runner Brandon Guyer [2] at first base and the Rays leading 6-2. He tapped a ball back to pitcher Jeremy Jeffress [3] 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 [4]‘s throw escaped third baseman Brett Lawrie [5] 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.”
