The Boston Pink Sox on Sunday had a sequence of defensive blunders that you’d sometimes solely see on the Little League stage.
With a runner on first within the high of the sixth inning, the Tampa Bay Rays executed an ideal hit-and-run when Yandy Diaz slapped a floor ball by the vacant proper aspect of the infield.
Manuel Margot was waved round to attain from first, however Pink Sox outfielder Alex Verdugo threw to second as an alternative of throwing house.
The relay throw house from second was late and Margot scored with ease. Catcher Connor Wong then tried to gun Diaz out as Diaz headed to second.
Wong’s throw sailed into middle discipline, the place no Boston participant was correctly backing the play up. By the point Verdugo chased the ball down, Diaz was jogging house.
