The Dominican Republic turns a gorgeous double play

During last night's Venezuela-Dominican Republic game in the World Baseball Classic, team Dominican Republic turned an absolutely amazing double play in the eighth inning, continuing a trend of everything going against the Venezuelan team.

With one out and Gerardo Parra on first, Marco Scutaro hit a grounder up the middle that second baseman Robinson Cano fielded. With the speedy Parra running, Cano flipped the ball to shortstop Jose Reyes using just his glove. Reyes proceeded to barehand the ball, tag second, and fire it over to a stretching Edwin Encarnacion at first to complete the double play.

It's a shame that those two will never play together in a non-WBC/All-Star Game setting, because their chemistry up the middle last night was a sight to behold. The two formed a potent duo on offense as well, combining for seven hits in the Dominican victory.
