MIAMI (AP) — Omar Infante lined a two-out RBI single that left fielder Jerry Sands misjudged in the ninth inning, capping a two-run rally that helped the Florida Marlins beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-4 Monday night.
Both runs were unearned. Scott Cousins’ two-out grounder scooted under the glove of shortstop Jamey Carroll for an error to score the tying run.READ MORE: LA District Attorney, George Gascon, Forms Independent Team To Reexamine Fatal Use-of-Force Incidents
Chris Coghlan was then intentionally walked to load the bases, and Infante lined a 1-0 pitch to left. Sands started in, braked and leaped, and the ball sailed over his glove.
