On Wednesday night, the Toronto Blue Jays squared off against the NL Central-leading Milwaukee Brewers in the second game of a three-game series between the two teams.
After the Blue Jays swiftly handled the Brewers in the opener with a 7-2 victory, it was the Brewers’ turn to make some noise as they won by a final of 4-2.
But during the game, something rather interesting took place.
Christian Yelich grounded a ball to first base, where Vladimir Guerrero Jr. made a diving stop.
Strangely though, the ball got caught in the webbing of Guerrero’s glove, and the star first baseman was forced to think quickly.
So, he tossed the entire glove to pitcher Trevor Richards, who ran to cover the first base bag and record the out.
On Twitter, MLB posted a video of this interesting moment.

It’s not every day that you’ll see a ball get completely caught in the webbing of a glove.
However, that is exactly what took place on Wednesday night.
Fortunately, Guerrero was able to think quickly and make the smart play, showing a great deal of ingenuity by tossing his glove and the ball into the hands of Richards.
Either way, the out was recorded and everything worked out okay for the two Blue Jays teammates.
The out was recorded, just not in typical fashion.
In the replay, Guerrero can be seen briefly trying to pull the ball out of the webbing in order to make the play.
That ultimately didn’t work, so he chose to toss the entire glove to Richards.
In the end, it worked out.NEXT: Chris Bassitt Comments On Foreign Substance Checks
