A spectacular defensive play earned the Salt Lake Bees the No. 1 spot on SportsCenter’s Top 10 plays.
During Saturday night’s game against the Tacoma Rainers, Rainers right fielder Trey Amburgey hit a ground ball and Bees second baseman Jake Palomaki made a diving play to field it. Without looking, Palomaki made a backhanded flip to shortstop David Fletcher, who plays for the Los Angeles Angels and is down with the Bees on a rehab assignment. Fletcher caught the flip bare-handed and threw it to first base, with the throw just beating Amburgey.
