Photo of crazy Marlins-Dodgers play

Dodgers infielder Luis Cruz came to bat with one out in the bottom of the seventh inning of Sunday’s Marlins-Dodgers game.  First base was occupied by Andre Ethier and second base was occupied by the newly-acquired  Adrian Gonzalez.  Cruz hit a little pop-up down the first base line and what happened next was complete mayhem.  Neither Cruz nor the fielders or runners knew what actually happened or what the call should be so runners were running everywhere and the fielders were tagging everyone.

The only one who seemingly knew how the play should have been called from the get-go was Donnie Baseball, the Dodgers’ manager Don Mattingly.  Following a meeting of the minds, the umpiring crew was able to sort it out and make the correct call.

You tell me if you knew the proper ruling before it was announced.  And then try to tell me you weren’t lying.
