When it comes to the never-ending double play that the New Britain Rock Cats turned against the Binghamton Mets on Thursday, I have no idea how anyone was able to cram its entire notation on their scorecards. The entire progression — which was impossible to fully take in without a few replays — saw all six infield Rock Cats defenders plus the center fielder handle the ball.
However, if anyone was able to follow it all, the hard-to-track scoring for the Double-A affiliate of the Minnesota Twins went like this: 3-2-6-1-5-3-4-6-8.
Onto the action already. (Note: This clip contains no audio)

If you're looking for a nice tongue-twister to try out at this weekend's weenie roast or simply like to give credit where credit is due, that was a grounder to first baseman Chris Parmelee, a throw home to catcher Dan Rohlfing, a throw to shortstop Chris Cates, a throw to pitcher Brett Jacobson, another to third baseman Deibinson Romero for the first out, then back to first baseman Parmelee, over to second baseman Steve Singleton, back to the shortstop Cates, who threw it to center fielder Joe Benson for the second out of the play and third out of the inning.
Does you brain hurt yet? Mine too.
