WATCH: Zobrist guns down Matt Carpenter with incredible throw from left field


by - Senior Writer -

Playing in left field against the St. Louis Cardinals on Sunday, 37-year-old Chicago Cubs veteran Ben Zobrist proved that age is just a number by making an excellent play on a ball hit to shallow left and then gunning down a runner at third.

Cardinals first baseman Paul Goldschmidt hit a 1-out single in the top of the third that Zobrist was quick to field. On the play, Cardinals third baseman Matt Carpenter attempted to advance from first to third. However, a bullet of a throw from Zobrist enabled Cubs third baseman Kris Bryant to tag Carpenter well out in front of the bag, thereby providing Zobrist with an assist.
