Ball Will Find You

Funny how the baseball always seems to find you.

The Rays shuffled around their positioning in the field in the seventh moving Reid Brignac to right field and inserting Willy Aybar at second.

Brignac is a slick-fielding infielder, who played a lot of outfield in high school, but not at the Major League level, while Aybar is better suited to play first and as little second as possible. So what happens?

The first ball of the inning went to Brignac and he made what appeared to be a routine catch while Aybar fielded a grounder and threw across his body to account for the final out of the inning.

When you’re exposed in the field, the ball always seems to find you.
