Twitter reacts to Kyle Schwarber making two errors on one play

Chicago Cubs left fielder Kyle Schwarber

Chicago Cubs left fielder Kyle Schwarber is far from a defensive specialist. In Game 3 of the NLDS against the Washington Nationals, Schwarber’s glove issues reared their ugly head.

Nationals second baseman Daniel Murphy sliced a ball down the left field line. The play was a little more than routine, but certainly one that should have been made. However, Schwarber dropped the ball for a two-base error. Making matters worse, he kicked it around, allowing Murphy to get to third on another error.

Schwarber’s errors extended the inning.

Ryan Zimmerman made them especially costly when he delivered a two-out double to score Murphy, giving Washington a 1-0 lead in Chicago.
