Now reading the latest in Rangers News SEATTLE, WA - SEPTEMBER 19: Delino DeShields #3 of the Texas Rangers steals second base, beating the tag of shortstop Jean Segura #2 of the Seattle Mariners, during the eighth inning of a game at Safeco Field on September 19, 2017 in Seattle, Washington.
In the cold air, his hand kind of slipped off the bat, the ball hit the barrel and spun backwards and about 20 rows into the stands.
It changed the complexion of the inning, the Rangers' eventual 3-1 win over Seattle and, lordy with this crazy playoff race, who knows what else.
After the first bunt, I just tried to loosen my hands a bit and I was able to maintain my angle to the ball." The bunt was followed by Shin-Soo Choo's go-ahead sacrifice fly.
DeShields got a fantastic read on the ball and was able to score the Rangers' third run.
