Kevin Correia makes the behind the back stop (GIF)

On the list of unlikely things to happen in the world of Major League Baseball on Tuesday night, the Minnesota Twins shutting out the Toronto Blue Jays in the Rogers Centre had to be near the top of the list. That was especially true considering that fact that Kevin Correia and his ERA north of 6.00 started for the Twins.

In the spirit of the fact that you can’t predict baseball, the Twins went on to win this game by a final score of 4-0. In the early innings of this one, however, it looked like the Blue Jays were going to put up a big offensive number once again.

With the bases loaded and only one out in the second inning, Jose Reyes was up to bat against Correia. He sent a sharp grounder up the middle that might have been a base hit and the start of a rally if not for a great stop.

Correia reached behind his back to make an impressive stop. He then had the presence of mind to gather himself to throw the ball home for the force out to keep the Blue Jays off the board.

The Twins were then able to keep the Jays offense quiet for the rest of the game and earned themselves a big victory.
