Reds 3B Todd Frazier Goes Over Railing on Catch, P Keyvius Sampson Saves Him

Cincinnati Reds third baseman Todd Frazier helped Keyvius Sampson out, so the pitcher did what he could to return the favor.

It was quite the scene.

During the bottom of the fourth inning of Tuesday night's game, Frazier went a long way to catch a foul pop-up off the bat of St. Louis Cardinals first baseman Matt Adams. Frazier went over the railing of the camera well to make the catch and ended up having to hold on for dear life.

Luckily for him, his pitcher had his back—and his legs.

Seeing his third baseman in a dangerous spot, Sampson alertly grabbed Frazier to keep him from falling. Because that's what a good teammate does.

While he was hanging on to the rail, Frazier showed the umpire the baseball in his glove to get credit for the out. He did so while putting his arm between Sampson's legs, which led to a bizarre scene.

Frazier was more concerned about getting the out than he was about getting back on his feet. Now that's a ballplayer.
