Infield Fly Newsbeat

MLB.com: Botched infield fly costs Phils potential rally

Phillies Phorget Inphield Phly Rule

Too bad Ruben Amaro Jr. isn’t coaching phirst base for the Phillies.

The Phillies had Hernandez on first and Freddy Galvis on second with one out when Odubel Herrera hit a popup in the infield, just to the left of the pitcher’s mound. Mets third baseman David Wright moved underneath the ball, but the wind blew it behind him.

No matter, the infield fly rule had been called.

But Hernandez ran to second the moment the ball hit the ground. Wright threw to Mets first baseman Lucas Duda, who threw to shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera, who tagged Hernandez for the inning-ending double play.

“I did not see the umpire call the infield fly,” Hernandez said through the Phillies’ translator. “I was trying to listen to my first-base coach, but couldn’t hear a thing because it was so loud. When the ball hit the ground, I reacted to it. However, there are no excuses. I am an infielder. I know the rules. I take full responsibility for it. It won’t happen again.”
