Zack Greinke finally got into the win column in his fourth start for the Los Angeles Angels, giving up four runs over seven innings in a 9-6 victory over the Cleveland Indians on Tuesday night. He also turned this great double play to end Cleveland's half of the fifth inning.

Greinke actually made that play look pretty easy, but closer inspection shows it was anything but. Not only did the right-hander have to dodge Ezequiel Carrera's bat shard, but he had to jump and go across his body to snag the liner. Then he had to land and pivot to first in time to get Jack Hannahan before he returned to the bag. Greinke's always been known as an athletic guy — away from the basketball court, at least — and this play really displayed that.
