Dee Gordon makes blooper reel after losing ball on sliding catch (Video)
Dee Gordon’s blooper reel play on Wednesday compounded what was already a bad week for the Dodgers. The 24-year-old shortstop was chasing a foul ball in the 7th inning against the Giants and appeared to make a great sliding catch. Unfortunately, as he was lifting his glove to show the umpire that he made the catch, the ball popped out and went into the stands. A fan caught the ball, but that was no help to Gordon who was upset with himself for losing the ball.
Gordon also went 0-for-4 at the plate with two strikeouts. He wasn’t the only Dodgers to struggle at the plate — the team failed to score a run in their three-game series.
Gordon’s big mistake may have been trying to show the ump the ball. Had he played it cool like this guy, maybe he would have caught a break.
