Dodgers second baseman Chase Utley made one of the most miraculous plays of the MLB season.

The Los Angeles Dodgers are sitting pretty atop the NL West. And in a matchup last night against the Colorado Rockies, Chase Utley, the Dodgers second baseman, made one of the most-spectacular plays of the MLB season in the fourth inning.

Utley initially bobbles the grounder from starter Tyler Chatwood, then recovers and makes a blind toss to first base that would impress even the most savvy NBA point guards.

Here it is from a different angle:

Maintaining enough bodily control to toss the baseball while falling forward like that is one thing, getting the ball in the vicinity of first base is another, but also managing to get the out on top of it all? Unbelievable.

The Dodgers won, 7-4. They play the Rockies again tonight.
