Nationals outfielder Michael Taylor is one of the fastest players in Major League Baseball, and he showed that in Friday night’s game against the Phillies.
Taylor came up with the bases loaded in the bottom of the third inning, and he crushed a ball to center that carried for what seemed like forever. Odubel Herrera lazily misplayed it, and the ball flew over his head. That was all Taylor needed to touch all the bases.
This interesting nugget describes how Taylor flipped the script on the Phillies, essentially.
Taylor has some serious wheels.
