Play of the Day – 4/3/11

Top Play: Tyler Colvin throws out runner for double play

This was clutch for the Cubs at the time, even though they ended up losing 5-4 to the Pittsburgh Pirates. Also note how Geovany Soto face checks Jaramillo during the tag. Priceless.

Runner-up: Brent Seabrook destroys Steve Downie

Got to show some love for Brent Seabrook for this great hit on cheap-shot artist Steve Downie. Love seeing Downie trying to get into a scuffle only to be shrugged off like a fly.

Top Play: Shannon Brown dunk vs. the New Orleans Hornets

Sick switch-hands dunk by Chris Shannon Brown
