3. Simmons makes a sneaky tag on Domonic Brown

This was another ordinary play that Simmons worked his magic on. The magic was so subtle that even the umpires missed it.

On a 1-1 pitch, Aaron Harang whiffed on a bunt and A.J. Pierzynski fired back to 2B to try and catch Domonic leaning.

Although Brown initially got back in safely, Simmons watched with an eagle eye and pounced the half-second that Brown took his foot off the bag.

After Fredi Gonzalez asked for a review, the umpires overruled the call and Brown was out.

2. Andrelton somehow makes the tag between his legs

This is another one of those plays Simmons had absolutely no right making. Luis Avilan threw over to first and looked to have Shin-Soo Choo stealing early. However, Freddie Freeman's throw (and possibly a late reaction from Simmons) took Simmons away from the base.

But somehow, the defensive wizard was able to sneak a tag in-between his legs and end the inning.
