Does anyone ever get tired of the spectacular defense of third baseman Adrian Beltre?

The four-time Gold Glove winner was at it again in Tuesday's 6-3 loss, making one of his best plays in his Rangers career for the final out of third inning.

Beltre went to his backhand to stop Yuniesky Betancourt's ground ball, then made a throw from the grass as he went toward the third-base dugout. Beltre's throw one-hopped into the glove of first baseman Mitch Moreland and beat Betancourt easily.

There was a runner-up. Center fielder Leonys Martin gets a shout out for throwing Jean Segura out at the plate in Wednesday's game. Aramis Ramirez hit a two-out single up the middle and Segura was running on the pitch, but Martin delivered a perfect throw home.

Granted, Segura did a poor job of base running and seemed to slow down before sliding into home. Still, Martin threw a perfect strike and catcher Geovany Soto made the tag for the third out of the inning.
