When Julio Rodriguez of the Mariners was batting in the ninth inning at the plate, he smashed the ball straight into the left-center gap. But little did he know that Adolis Gracia, out of nowhere, will take a blinder to dismiss him. When Gracia took the catch flying in the air, even Rodriguez could not believe it.
