Play of the Day: Theriot Caught It! Do You Believe in Miracles?

I wanted to pick Starlin Castro's first Wrigley Field homerun that gave the Cubs the lead for good, or the 2-run wild pitch and error allowed by Yadier Molina. However, after watching Ryan Theriot treat the baseball like it was invisible and coated with bacon grease for most of the afternoon, I had to pick the final out of the game that Theriot somehow managed to catch without falling down or anything.

The axiom about blind squirrels occasionally finding a nut comes to mind.

I began to have my doubts about the Cubs winning this game and clutching the series when I saw Ryan Theriot missed a grounder that could of resulted in a double play. However, catching the ball for the final out made Theriot a hero.

I wouldn't go so far as to call him a hero. But seeing as I was having a hard time differentiating between his OBP and his fielding percentage for the game, the fact that he caught a softly hit flare right at him was pretty momentous.
