SHARE Brandon Phillips makes incredible behind-the-back toss to second base

In the top of the seventh inning, the Cincinnati Reds had a 5-4 lead, and Cubs right fielder Jorge Soler thought he tied the game with a two-out single up the middle, but four-time gold glove winner Brandon Phillips made an incredible play.

The Reds second baseman stabs the ball over the middle and makes a no-look, behind-the-back toss to shortstop Eugenio Suarez, who catches the ball barehanded.

Phillips’ play saved a run, and the Cubs didn’t score another run for the rest of the game.
