Well this is how you keep you’re team in the game, eh?
Tie game, bottom on the ninth, two outs and a 2-2 count, and Chicago White Sox Todd Frazier hits a long-ball destined to be a game-winning home run. Or was it?
Not if Texas Rangers rookie Nomar Mazara had anything to say about it.

WHAT. A. CATCH. In and of itself, spectacular, not to mention with the damn game on the line. That’s how you keep your spot in the lineup.
Oh, and the fact that Mazara has only failed to reach base via a hit or walk in just one game since being called up by the Rangers help, too.
Well played, kid.
Unfortunately, the Rangers did eventually succumb to the White Sox, 4-3 in the 11th. Can’t win ’em all, they say.
