A fine putout for the leading commercial family of this state!
"More Portmanteau Plays" by Stuart Walker
First baseman Matt LaPorta, after recording the final putout Tuesday night on a grounder to first, flipped the ball to closer Chris Perez as the Indians lined up to celebrate a 7-3 victory over Kansas City at Kauffman Stadium.
While committing just two errors at second base, he also had 5.18 total chances per nine innings and 2.2 putouts per nine innings, both of which led major league second basemen.
In that span, the Rangers rank 14th in the AL with 85 errors, 14th in fielding percentage (.930) and 12th in putouts 373.
