VIDEO: Iglesias makes a dazzling play to rob Gardner of an infield hit


Jose Iglesias is a highlight reel unto himself. Seems like every night he turns in one play that makes you go "Oh, did he just do that?"

Monday night, against the Yankees, the Detroit Tigers' brilliant shortstop robbed New York's speedy Brett Gardner of an infield hit, ranging deep in the hole, then throwing across his body for the out.

"That’s a tough play, especially with Gardner running, because Garnder’s a legitimate speed guy, a Major League steal-type guy," Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said.

"I know Iglesias was playing him in a little bit because of the speed, but to make that play, and get a runner like Gardner was pretty impressive. That’s probably the best play we’ve seen from him all season."

It certainly helped out starting pitcher Alfredo Simon, who'd already seen Gardner single and steal a base in the third inning.

"That was great. That helped me out a lot in that inning," Simon said. "Gardner's a really fast runner, and after that, who knows if he's going to steal the base, and after that, base hit. The team helped me out a lot defensively. That was good."

Below is the video of that play:
