Jose Bautista Comes Up Throwing to Nab Billy Butler at First Base

Kyle NewportFeatured Columnist IVDecember 21, 2016

A play like this shows just how good the Toronto Blue Jays have been lately.

The Kansas City Royals' Billy Butler thought he had a single when he lined one into right field, but the Toronto Blue Jays' Jose Bautista wasn't going to concede the hit. Bautista came up throwing and threw Butler out fairly easily:

With his team clinging to a one-run lead in the top of the ninth inning, Bautista's laser looked like it would help push his team's winning streak to 10 games. Unfortunately for the Blue Jays, they blew the lead in the ninth and went on to lose in extra innings.
