A's prospect Billy Burns scores on a sac fly ... from second base (VIDEO)

Billy Burns' name matches his style of play on the basepaths.

The minor league outfielder stole 74 bases in 81 attempts while splitting time between Nationals' Class-A and Double-A affiliates last season. And Burns — who was traded to the A's at the end of 2013 — seems to be blazing a trail to the big leagues.

The 24-year-old prospect — playing for the Midland Rockhounds —already has people comparing the speedster to Ricky Henderson and with good reason.

On Tuesday, Burns managed to score a run on a sacrifice fly — after tagging up from second base!

That's Henderson territory right there. Just don't pull a hammy.
