Colorado Rockies first baseman Daniel Murphy got caught in a pickle Tuesday against the Pittsburgh Pirates and appeared to be burnt toast. Then, he got lucky.

Check out this funny sequence, as Murphy’s batting helmet got in the way of the ball, allowing the veteran to not only get out of the rundown but score.

There’s not a lot more we can add there. Just a heads-up play that had Murphy laughing all the way to home.
