Nolan Reimold said he didn’t have a chance to catch Evan Longoria’s fly ball that fell in left-center field for a crucial two-run double in the fifth.
“It was placed pretty well,” he said. “It was like 10 feet out of my reach or so, five or 10 feet, somewhere in there. It was just hit in one of those spots. Tough to get to.”
Reimold said he felt fine running on the turf. “Nothing unexpected,” he said.
He did concede that he lacks that initial burst since undergoing surgery on his Achilles.
“I may not have that first step or whatever, I don’t know, for a little while,” he said, “but I was feeling all right out there.”
