Hit and Run
From August 2011: a well-executed hit and run play by the Phillies. Shane Victorino takes off toward second base as Placido Polanco hits the grounder toward the right side of the infield. Notice that the Mets second baseman is playing close to the bag, opening a big gap which Polanco takes advantage of.
It squirts through, advancing Victorino and giving the Phillies runners on 1st and 2nd.
