New York Mets second baseman Daniel Murphy returned from injury yesterday for a split-squad game against the Washington Nationals. Bryce Harper made the mistake of testing Murphy and got thrown out on a highlight between-the-legs toss. Harper could just shake his head and smile.

Nathan Lewis is probably going to be on the next SportsCenter Top 10. The 6-year old from California was playing third base on Saturday in a Irvine Pony’s Shetland All-star game when a batter hit a ball over his head that tailed into foul territory. Having little time to react, Lewis tracked the ball perfectly and made a unbelievable diving catch. The catch is obviously the best part of the video, but check out the kids reaction as he gets up after making the beautiful catch as if it was no big deal. A true big leaguer.
