If you missed it, the ball was hit off the end of the bat and was hit on a couple of hops about six feet to Aurilia's right. Aurilia fielded the ball on an awkward-looking short hop facing left field for some reason, then jumped about four inches off the ground, spun and "fired" a "laser" on a short hop to Jolbert Cabrera at first. David at Your Thoughts Exactly posted a similar observation after attending Saturday's game:
(regarding Aurilia's fielding)Yeah, I know, it's not exactly breaking news, but I really, REALLY miss Carlos Guillen right about now.
...in the 8th he fielded a hard-hit grounder right at him like a high-schooler without a cup.
