I was going through some shots from the Gwinnett Braves game on 7/7 and I saw this series and liked it a lot, so I figured I would share it with all of you. We know how great of a tear Matt has been on lately, but this really shows his hustle and his contributions to the team.
The pictures will tell the story after the jump.
Matt first gets on base by taking a ball to the elbow (which looked like it really hurt him).
He then steals 2nd on the next pitch. This is the series of his slide into 2nd. He was safe even after sliding past the bag.
Matt then moved to third on Wes Timmons hit and then came into score on the sacrifice fly. This guy does everything the team asks him to and I think it might be time to give him a shot in the majors. Blanco has been playing great, but this guy just brings that little guy with a chip on his shoulder mentality that would fit great with our team.
