The Phillies’ Hunter Pence Got A Bit Confused Last Night
The incident came in the second inning of the Phillies' bout with the Arizona Diamondbacks. After leading the inning off with a double, Mayberry singled which normally would have brought Pence home easily -- except Pence slid into an uncovered third base. Video from CSN-Philadelphia:
Pence explained after the game:
Initially when it was hit, it was so close to me that I thought the shortstop was going to field it. I was trying to get over to third and make sure he didn’t throw me out. [Mayberry] must have hit it so hard that it got through. Fortunately, it ended up being a good laugh and everything worked out OK.
The run ended up being meaningless, as the Phillies cruised to a 9-2 victory.
