9. Jose Iglesias hits a walk-off single

In another game against the Houston Astros, Iglesias let the fans see how fast he really is. On July 30, with the score tied at 2, Iglesias hit a little infield bloop that the first baseman had to field. The pitcher, Will Harris, had to make the out. Unfortunately for him, Iglesias’s foot landed on the bag before his did. But, the play did require a review to confirm the single.

Iglesias’s single came at the perfect time. With two outs, Tyler Collins was on third base and James McCann was on first. The single allowed Collins to score and the Tigers won the game. While walk-off wins are memorable on their own merit, it was Iglesias’s celebration after he crossed first that made this one so special. He immediately shot his arms in the air and pumped his chest toward the sky. His helmet toss was epic, too. It just doesn’t get much better than moments like that!
