Jason Heyward gets caught in rundown, reaches third safely after Matrix-like maneuvering

With one out in the bottom of the eighth of Wednesday's game against the Marlins, Braves outfielder Jason Heyward took off for home when Chris Johnson grounded to short. Adeiny Hechavarria threw home to strand Heyward between third and the plate.

Marlins catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia ran Heyward part of the way back to third before throwing to the charging Casey McGehee (who's big in Japan, by the way). Saltalamacchia's throw was just a bit too far inside the line and McGehee had to reach across his body to tag Heyward, who is apparently The One because he straight dodged the glove and dived back into third safely.

See if you can spot which one is Heyward and which is Neo.
