You will not see a play this bad very often around the world of MLB. The first-place Los Angeles Dodgers looked more like Angels in the Outfield on this one particular play against the San Diego Padres in the sixth inning of a blowout win on Monday evening.
It started off with a weak fly ball to center fielder Yasiel Puig and concluded with the Rymer Liriano scoring from first after Dodgers pitcher Clayton Kershaw made the smart decision to avoid him sliding into home plate. When all was said and done, two runs scored on three Dodgers’ errors.
As the announcers concluded, “that was pathetic.”
At the very least, the Dodgers earned a 8-3 victory and maintained a 3.5 game lead in the NL West.
