Twins use four man outfield against Jose Ramierz

On one hand, if you see this kind of shift, you should probably just aim to slap a weak ground ball the other way for an easy single. On the other hand, Jose Ramirez did not aim to hit a weak ground ball, and hit an absolute rocket instead. On the third hand, he hit that absolute rocket right at the fourth outfielder.
