Yankees' Brendan Ryan hits ball twice in one swing (VIDEO)

NY Yankees second baseman Brendan Ryan hit the ball twice Thursday afternoon, which normally wouldn't be headline news.

Except that Ryan did it in one swing of the bat.

With one out in the second inning and Ichiro Suzuki on first base, Tigers pitcher Rick Porcello jammed Ryan with a 1-2 fastball inside.

The ball first struck the handle of Ryan's bat, then made contact with the barrel as he completed the follow-through on his swing.

It ended up a single down the third-base line.

Here's YES announcer Paul O'Neil's explanation of the twice-as-nice play.
