Manager Walt Weiss said this isn't any ordinary shortstop.
"He's been showing that since the spring that he's feeling real good, moving real well," Weiss said. "Those were tough chances last night. I know, playing the position, to convert those plays into outs is very difficult. Not only does he have the strong arm, but the quick release. That one play up the middle, the ball was in his glove and gone. That's what it takes to finish those plays.
"That's what I like about him. He's got the ability to finish plays -- not only get to the ball, but finish plays."
