It all worked out in the end for the Cardinals, but there was a brutal stretch of fielding during a game Monday night against the New York Mets.
The Cardinals were leading 6-2 in the sixth inning when the Mets’ Jose Reyes hit a double into the right-center gap. St. Louis right fielder Magneuris Sierra booted the ball when he tried to grab it, and Reyes raced for third. Sierra then uncorked a wild throw in the vicinity of third base and that allowed Reyes to score on a little-league home run.
Mets catcher Travis d’Arnaud stepped to the plate next and swung at the first pitch he saw, lifting a fly to center fielder Dexter Fowler, who dropped the ball.
That’s three errors in a span of two pitches. It’s not something you see very often.
