Elvis has left the stadium

Can a defensive play shift the World Series? Texas Rangers SS Elvis Andrus and 2B Ian Kinsler made some incredible plays in Game 2, but the range and glovework by Andrus in the fifth inning was some of the best you'll ever see. 
To recap: Andrus saved a run by diving into the hole deep behind second base, snaring Rafael Furcal's grounder, then flipping to Kinsler.

"The situation and being that it was a World Series game and just a run-saving play, I mean, the play was ridiculous. It was probably one of the best I've seen. Glove flip was right on the money. It doesn't get any better than that," Kinsler said. 

Added Josh Hamilton, "When we get home tonight, I'm going to watch it again."
