Angels forced to play Bourjos at second vs. Yanks


ANAHEIM, Calif. — For the first time in his professional career, Los Angeles Angels outfielder Peter Bourjos played the infield.

It didn’t take long for him to look like he had already been there before.

Bourjos pulled off web-gem wizardry in the top of the 13th inning Monday night of a 4-3, 14-inning loss when, while playing second base for the first time in his career, he dove to his left to stop a hard-hit ground ball from speedy New York Yankees outfielder Brett Gardner.

Upon recording the out, Bourjos got his share of sarcastic cheers and claps from teammates in the home dugout.
