Elvis Andrus Manages to Stay on His Feet Long Enough to Turn Wild Double Play

There won't be a crazier double play turned this year than the one turned by Texas Rangers shortstop Elvis Andrus on Friday night.

With Cleveland Indians designated hitter Carlos Santana running on the pitch, Andrus was going to have to find a way to avoid the runner in order to turn a double play on an easy grounder by third baseman Mike Aviles. Things didn't go as easily as the shortstop would have liked.

Santana got to the bag just after Andrus, which meant the shortstop had to use his athleticism to find a way to complete the double play:

It didn't look like Aviles—who has six stolen bases this season—was busting it down the line, but that doesn't take away from Andrus' great effort.
