Dominican Slacker hit a slow grounder to King, who was out first. First Baseman DJ. Lemahiu then stopped shortstop Clipper Torres in the second leg and both running backs in the middle.
Torres catcher Gary Sanchez throws the ball to Gio Urshela, who knocks Semion out between third and plate. Colombian Urshela sent the ball to Torres, who retired by wiping the pistol in the anteroom, which was a tight play.
