James Loney's Defensive Play Yesterday Was Also Pretty Sweet (If You Could See It)

I don't know how to embed videos, so you'll have to trust me on it, or you can click here. Here are some rudimentary screen shots however:

Loney fields ball backhanded

Loney tosses high-arcing, slow ball towards first base across his body

Kuroda, covering first, receives ball before Cameron Maybin gets there

Maybin is called out

Pretty nice play, you have to admit. Now, does this redeem Loney for his top of the seventh GIDP that doubled Matt Kemp off of second base (instantly turning a RISP situation into an end-of-inning situation)? Probably not.
