Miley goes behind the back to snare grounder

NEW YORK -- Red Sox lefty Wade Miley helped his cause in the fifth inning of Sunday's 5-4 loss to the Mets when he made a nifty behind-the-back snag on a ground ball by David Wright.

With a runner at first and two outs, Wright spun one back up the middle and Miley deftly wrapped his glove around to his left side and snared it, firing to first for the out.

At the time, the Red Sox trailed, 1-0.
