Cuthbert was at it again in the series opener. In the top of the second with two out and the potential tying run on second, Gordon Beckham hit a high chopper toward short.
Cuthbert charged and grabbed the ball on one hop with his bare hand and rifled a throw to first. The throw was low, but first baseman Eric Hosmer made a great "ole" snare to record the out.
