Two Baseball Players Synced Up Their Talents For One Sensational Play

How many infielders does it take to throw one runner out?

Kansas City Royals infielders Omar Infante and Alcides Escobar redefined what it means to be a shortstop and a second baseman on this play. In effect, they combined to become a "shortbaseman." (Also open to addressing the pair as "secondstop.")

In the bottom of the ninth inning against the Cleveland Indians on Tuesday night, Infante ran down a sure hit up the middle and flipped it with his glove to Escobar, who twirled and rifled the ball to throw out catcher (and slow-poke) Roberto Perez. 

Just watch these two form like Voltron to turn the middle infield into one giant net for scooping up groundballs: 

Managers and coaches use versions of this phrase all the time: Teamwork makes the dream work. Infante and Escobar are proving that, one out at a time.  

The Royals hung on to win 2-1, bringing their AL Central-leading record to 61-38 .
