Lucky Roll Helps Ian Kinsler Get an Inside-The-Park Home Run

It never hurts to be good. It never hurts to be lucky. It certainly never hurts to be good and lucky. Friday night against the Chicago White Sox Texas Rangers second baseman Ian Kinsler was just that (good and lucky) when he hit an inside-the-park home run.

From the looks of the hit it should have just been a double--at the most a triple if he really legged it out--but since it happened to roll underneath the wall padding he got the extra time he needed to make the trip around the bags.

It also helped that Dayan Viciedo had trouble finding the ball. My favorite part was when he looked, didn't see it. and then looked up as if someone was going to help him. I can just imagine what the haters in the Windy City are doing with that one.
