Indians' Cabrera robs Orioles of a run temporarily

Indians shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera just made one of the best defensive plays that I've ever seen, robbing Felix Pie of an RBI single in the top of the fourth inning.

With Luke Scott on third and one out, Pie hit a rocket up the middle that deflected off the foot of Indians' starter Justin Masterson. Cabrera, who had made a move toward the middle, stopped and bare-handed the ball while he was on his back. He then made sure Scott held at third before throwing to first to get the second out.

The good news was that Matt Wieters followed with an RBI single and scored Scott to give the Orioles a 3-1 lead, and after a Corey Patterson walk, Cesar Izturis stroked an RBI single to score Wieters.

It's 4-1 heading into the bottom of the fourth.
