Video: Robbie Grossman guns out A-Rod, but Twins fall to Yankees

Publish date:

Very few things are better in Major League Baseball than watching an outfielder throw out a runner trying to sneak an extra base. Well unless that runner is Alex Rodriguez, then it's even more enjoyable.

Twins left fielder Robbie Grossman had that very opportunity Thursday night. Rodriguez had just hit what appeared to be a routine single. Rodriguez was trying to sneak into second base, but Grossman had other ideas.

Unfortunately for the Twins it wasn't enough. The Yankees pulled away in the seventh on a three-run homer by Didi Gregorius in the seventh inning to give the Yankees a 4-1 lead.

They held on to win by the same margin.
