    DEMO PLATE SHOWDOWN

    The sun is setting over the waterfront at AT&T Park in San Francisco.. Giants ace Tim Lincecum finds himself in a bit of a jam.. Rangers Mitch Moreland is on second-base following a double off the wall in left.. Julian Borbon is at the plate.. It is the top of the 4th inning and the Giants are 1 out away from reaching victory.. Lets see what happens..

    Lincecum wings a fastball into home plate looking to get ahead in the count.. *CRACK*.. it didn't work.. Borbon connects and earns a line drive base hit into right field..

    Moreland is feeling lucky.. he gets his legs moving and is determined to put a "R" on his stat sheet.. he ignores his 3rd base coach and sprints as fast as he can to home plate.. He knows he can make it.. He has a crazed look on his face as he turns on the jets.. only 90 feet away from a tie game..

    Giants' right fielder Cody Ross sees Moreland's aggression.. he knows that he is a man on a mission and he wants that run bad.. Cody catches a glimpse of him out of the corner of his eye rounding third as he fields the line drive in right.. he comes up firing, giving it everything hes got.. The throw is on target, heading home to catcher Buster Posey..

    Posey is in position.. he reluctantly puts his body in front of the plate.. protecting it as if it was his own child.. He waits for the throw to reach him.. he knows Moreland is not gonna stop and it is up to him to prevent the score..

    The ball reaches Posey with Moreland milliseconds away from the plate.. Posey goes for the tag as Moreland attempts to slide around it.. The umpire looks in closely.. This is as close as it gets ladies and gentlemen..

    he's safe, you can see the glove above the runner and the runner's hand on the plate.
