Denard Span Hits Triple, But Scores Anyway

Denard Span is one of the fastest players in MLB. And during Wednesday night’s game with the Houston Astros, he showcased his speed.

And an error (E9) from OF George Springer helped, too.

Span saw an elevated fastball from P Brett Oberholtzer and crushed it into the right field gap. With his speed, it would’ve normally been a triple. But Springer slipped, misplayed the ball and took a long time to finally pick it up cleanly to hurl it toward the infield.

And hey, Span was pretty excited heading into this series. He must’ve known good things were in store in the near future.
