The 2-1 putout isn't a common one in baseball; most of the ones that do occur are on wild pitchespassed balls that result in the pitcher covering the plate. So how does a pitcher record a 2-1 putout on a ball that never touches the ground?
Diamondbacks reliever Josh Collmenter did just that in Sunday's game against the Marlins -- with an assist (literally) from catcher Miguel Montero following a phenomenal effort on a bunt by Adeinny Hechavarria. After Montero dived and popped the ball up into the air just before it hit the ground, Collmenter tried to barehand it, juggled it -- while leaping over the sliding Montero -- and then pulled it with his bare hand on the second try.
