Pirates Outfielder Disastrously Trips, Falls On His Face, And Misses Fly Ball To Lose To The Cubs In 12th Inning

by 4 years ago


It’s still very early in an evening loaded with sports, but we’ve found your unquestioned favorite to be the top of the Sportscenter ‘Not Top 10′ segment. A 12-inning thriller between the Pittsburgh Pirates and the Chicago Cubs was decided on a disastrous error by Pirates’ outfielder Gregory Polanco, who slipped and fell on his face trying to track a routine fly ball. The Cubs had the bases loaded, so the winning run scored easily.

It’s going to be a long time before anyone lets him live that one down…ouch. That’s seriously an error for the ages.
