Josh Reddick saves Astros with great plays | MLB.com

Gardner, no slouch on the basepaths, ran from home to third base in 11.24 seconds, his third-fastest time this year—just not quite fast enough.

Astros outfielder Josh Reddick discusses his key defense in Game 2, including a leaping catch at the wall and an outfield assist.

“I was just a little out of whack running from second there,” Gardner said. “I still caught the inside of the bag, but I wasn’t able to push off it like I needed to.

“I knew I was out by three or four inches. I slid to the outside of the base and knew it was going to be a close play, but it was a good relay throw.”

In the same way he was stationed for Gardner, Reddick played Headley in the gap, allowing him to take an ideal route to the wall.

“That was an awesome play,” Astros left fielder Marwin Gonzalez said. “Who knows what was coming after that? He’s one of the best outfielders in the [Majors]. What can I say about our defense? The way we’ve been playing, it’s incredible.”
