Brandon Phillips just turned 34, but make no mistake: The dude still can ball.
The Cincinnati Reds second baseman proved that in spectacular fashion Monday night. The Reds led the Chicago Cubs by a run in the seventh inning when Cubs hitter Jorge Soler laced a grounder up the middle that might have tied the score, if Phillips hadn’t made one of the best plays you’ll see this season.
Jason Williams would be proud.
Shortstop Eugenio Suarez deserves props here as well for his barehanded snag of Phillips’ slick behind-the-back toss. The nifty 4-6 putout couldn’t have come at a better time, either, as it ended Chicago’s scoring threat and helped Cincy hold on for a 5-4 win.
