Video of Jayson Werth’s Three Steals In The Same Inning

Baseball is such an intricate and stat-obsessed sport, “rare” feats are accomplished with decent frequency. The Phillies got one of the rarest earlier this week, thanks to their right fielder. Jayson Werth stole home in the seventh inning Tuesday night, but not before stealing second and third, making him just the ninth player since 1942 to steal all three bases in one inning. Werth ended up with four steals as the Phillies defeated the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-3. Video of Werth’s rare feat can be seen right here. Watch him time his run perfectly, from the moment the catcher lazily released the throw back to the pitcher.
