Minnesota Twins third baseman Trevor Plouffe had a home run taken away from him this past Thursday by Kansas City Royals outfielder Lorenzo Cain at Target Field. So Plouffe knows a thing or two about great grabs. With the same two American League Central teams facing off Monday night — this time at Kauffman Stadium — it was Plouffe's turn to make a jaw-dropping catch.
With the Twins down 6-0 in the bottom of the fourth and two outs, Alex Gordon hit a pop-up down the third-base line. Plouffe tracked the ball into foul territory, where he then collided with a rail. The fourth-year player went head over heels into a cut-out and somehow hung on to the ball. Unfortunately for Minnesota fans, that was the lone highlight of the night as the Royals won 13-0.
And LSU reinstated Jeremy Hill — for now. The sophomore running back had his probation extended but may still miss time due to legal troubles.
