Third Baseman Brett Lawrie’s reputation as a fearless baseball player was on display today against the host New York Yankees. Lawrie chased down a foul ball off the bat of Mark Teixiera down the third base line, and made a ridiculous attempt at catching the ball as it fell into a camera well.
Lawrie was forced to leave the game with a bruised leg. According to the Blue Jays, Lawrie is day-to-day with a leg contusion.
The Yankees went on to win the rain-shortened game 6-0 against the Blue Jays, powered by a strong four hit performance by Hiroki Kuroda. The win gives the Bronx Bombers a full ten game lead over the Baltimore Orioles.
