Billy Hamilton is so fast he once embarrassed the entire Boston Red Sox infield in the span of just 15 seconds.

It happened Sunday, in fact, in the bottom of the seventh inning at Great American Ball Park, where the Cincinnati Reds speedster got caught in a rundown after being picked at first base by Red Sox pitcher Brandon Workman and still managed to score.

Using his quickness, Hamilton hornswoggled Boston's infield into a very costly error after getting caught by Workman, taking second and third on an errant throw from Dustin Pedroia and scampering home after noticing that nobody was covering the plate.

Hamilton, incidentally, took the field Sunday with 58 stolen bases, the most in the majors, and will set a new career-high with his next steal.
