Watch: Ronald Torreyes’ brilliant defense maintains Phillies lead


The Philadelphia Phillies defense has not been one of their strong suits over the past few seasons. Ronald Torreyes has been one of the few bright spots in the field in 2021.

He impressed once again with an incredible double play to save a run and end the top of the fifth inning of game one of the doubleheader. This 5-4-3 double play courtesy of Torreyes and Jean Segura got the crowd on their feet.

On the NBC Sports Philadelphia broadcast, Statcast measured Torreyes’ throw from his knees to be 67 mph and Segura’s throw was 89.6 mph. This came two innings after Torreyes’ RBI single to extend the Phillies lead to 5-2.

He was not done yet. In the top of the sixth, Torreyes made a barehanded grab for the final out of the inning.

It’s up to the bullpen to finish the rest of this one. Travis Jankowski’s four RBIs have the Phillies in the lead.
