Astros pitcher Colin McHugh goes Matrix (VIDEO)

In the bottom half of the second inning in last nights match up between the Astros and Athletics, Houston Pitcher Colin McHugh dodges a line drive with a move straight out of the matrix. Watch the video.

Collin McHugh not only appeared to defy gravity, his gymnastics helped the Astros turn a double play in the process. As McHugh fell on his back, Astros shortstop Carlos Correa fielded the ball near the second-base bag and turned two.

Plate umpire Bob Guccione immediately realized that he had seen McHugh’s nimble move before. Guccione strode toward the mound and remarked to McHugh, “That was ‘The Matrix!’,” referring to the movie franchise starring Keanu Reeves.
