The Toronto Blue Jays used Coghlan as a pinch-hitter for their pitcher's spot during the seventh inning Tuesday night, and he came around to score on Kevin Pillar's triple.

Kevin Pillar belted a triple over the head of the Cardinals' Stephen Piscotty in the seventh inning of the Major League Baseball game, but the right fielder was able to quickly get to the ball and fire a throw home to beat Coghlan by several steps.

Give Chris Coghlan a gold medal because that was an Olympic-worthy leap into home plate.

"It just all happens like that", Coghlan said. As Molina went low to apply the tag, Coghlan went high, leaping into the air and somersaulting into home plate to score the go-ahead run.

Jose Bautista singled to right field, and Stephen Piscotty attempted to throw out Ezequiel Carrera trying to advance from first to third. All Coghlan had to do then was stick the landing. Maybe just a little soreness from lifting so I can gain some muscle and weight back.

The Lansing Lugnuts (10-9) mounted a late charge, getting a three-run home run from Vladimir Guerrero, Jr., but an eight-run lead was too much for even the Sluggin' Lugs to overcome as they fell 11-6 to the South Bend Cubs on Tuesday.

A year ago, reflecting on the hard slide he had made at second base that severed a ligament in Pittsburgh Pirates shortstop Jung-Ho Kang's left knee in 2015, Coghlan told ESPN.com's Jesse Rogers, "I'm old-school".

GEORGE: [ puts in production order for purple and gold PG1s ] Word. "I ain't even at that point, yet", George said after the loss. The Cavs held Paul George in check for most of the game, consistently throwing double teams at the Pacers' No. 1 option.

Veteran right-hander Mat Latos (0-0, 7.20) gets the call for the Blue Jays, coming off a no-decision Friday night at the Los Angeles Angels.

"When I saw Coghlan do a front flip over Molina, it was like I saw a unicorn or something", Estrada said.

But the guy who Martin replaced at the hot corner essentially stole the show with one of the craziest plays you'll ever see on a baseball diamond.

The Jays' bats ought to fare better against the Cardinals' other two starters. The game was actually pushed back early Wednesday morning before the players even headed to the ballpark because of the imposing weather forecasts.

"Right now I think I'm just in a good place mentally", Pillar said.

Not only did the Jays blow a lead twice - letting the Cardinals come back from 4-2 and 5-4 leads, things went completely bonkers in the 11th inning. A new Radio Frequency handheld camera feature, using the Samsung Galaxy S8 will let fans get behind-the-scenes perspectives after home runs.
