VIDEO: Jonathan Davis and Luis Urias Team Up for Pair of Insane Plays
By Larry Rupp
The Milwaukee Brewers are taking on the Tampa Rays to kick off Wednesday's MLB slate as pitcher Eric Lauer attempts to grab his seventh win of the season. Everything is going the Brewers' way early after second baseman Luis Urias and outfielder Jonathan Davis teamed up for a pair of insane plays.
With one out in the first inning, Rays' designated hitter Wander Franco blooped what looked like a ball that would drop in shallow center field for a hit. However, Urias sprinted over from the left side of second base, where he was playing on a shift, to make a great diving catch for the out, instead.
There is a bit of controversy on this play as it is obvious that Urias bobbled the ball for a moment. The replay showed on the broadcast didn't have a clear view of whether or not it touched the ground, though. Tampa Bay did not challenge the call and the out remained recorded on the score sheet.
Meanwhile, there was no doubt about the legitimacy of Davis' grab in center field. Rays' left fielder Randy Arozanrena put a charge into the baseball during the second inning and it kept on drifting toward the fence. Davis was able to track it down, but flew face first into the wall as a result.
While Davis originally stayed in the finish the inning, he was replaced by Jace Peterson before the start of the third. It was likely a precautionary move by manager Craig Counsell and updates regarding Davis' status should be released following the conclusion of the game.
The Brewers have odds set at +1800 to win the World Series, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
