Diamondbacks score run on bizarre play (Video)

During Sunday’s game between the Dodgers and Diamondbacks, Arizona scored their second run on a play you likely won’t see again anytime soon.

In the top of the fourth inning, Ross Stripling delivered a pitch that bounced before reaching catcher Yasmani Grandal. The ball ricocheted up and hit Grandal’s face mask, then dropped and got wedged between his body and chest protector.

The play was ruled a wild pitch, resulting in David Peralta advancing from first base to second base and Jake Lamb being allowed to cross home plate from third base.

The Diamondbacks would score twice in the inning to take a 3-0 lead. However, the Dodgers stormed back to win 14-3. Grandal hit his 15th home run of the season in the sixth inning to add an exclamation point to an eventful afternoon.
