Houston Astros pitcher Collin McHugh earned the win Tuesday night against the Oakland A’s, but his real winning moment was not throwing the ball, but instead .
Luckily, McHugh appears to have exceptional reflexes. Or maybe he entered “The Matrix.” Either way, this dodge was wild.
In Oakland for the first of a two-game series against the A’s, Kendrys Morales lined a 90-mile per hour hit straight back at McHugh on the mound. Rather than getting drilled in the head, McHugh smoothly bent backward and avoided any real contact as the ball slid right under his chin.
