Considering how fast the play happened, a surprising amount of thoughts went through infield coach Perry Hill's mind.

With runners on first and second and two out last Monday in Arizona, Gerardo Parra hit a ball back up the middle. It caught a piece of the mound, but still looked earmarked for center. Shortstop Adeiny Hechavarria fielded it behind the bag on the second baseman's side, spun, and threw a bullet to get Parra.

"I'm thinking, 'Here we go, here's a run, maybe two,'" Hill said. "Then when he caught it I said, 'Shoot, we've stopped a run.' Then he let it go and I said, 'Wait a minute, we're going to be out of the inning.' The play didn't take very long, but it seemed like it took forever."

It wasn't until Hechavarria saw the replay between innings that he realized from just how far beyond the infield dirt he threw.

"I was like, 'Wow,'" Hechavarria said. "They told me, 'Good play,' and to mess around I said, 'No, no, that was routine.'"
