Rays' Desmond Jennings Scores from 2nd Base on Sacrifice Fly
Charles Rex Arbogast

It's not every day that an MLB player scores from second base on a flyout, but the Tampa Bay Rays' Desmond Jennings made it happen with a little luck and great hustle.

During Monday's game against the Chicago White Sox, Rays outfielder Matt Joyce hit a fly ball to the wall. White Sox center fielder Adam Eaton caught the ball, but he had to throw it to his teammate in order to get it back in as quickly as possible. Unfortunately for the White Sox, it wasn't quick enough.

Jennings had alertly tagged up and never slowed up as he rounded third. His hustle allowed him to easily beat the throw to the plate:

The run gave the Rays a 2-0 lead, but the White Sox rallied for a 7-3 victory.
