Billy does it again: A's Burns robs Orioles' Davis of booming homer
The Oakland Athletics had another forgettable day at the office Monday, losing to the Baltimore Orioles to cap a four-game sweep at Camden Yards.
It wasn't without one major highlight, however: center fielder Billy Burns, pressed into duty after outfielder Sam Fuld was ejected from the game, committed another play of all-out theft at the expense of Orioles slugger Chris Davis.
Watch the grace displayed by Burns as he races to the center field wall and brings down what looked to be a no-doubter:
Burns has made the extraordinary look rather pedestrian all season, as he's really put together a rookie campaign that has to make the A's hopeful about his future. While his hitting has come back to earth a bit, he has definitely had the kind of year that makes it feasible to see him as a fixture in the A's lineup for years to come.
