Watch: Phillies’ Maikel Franco leaves game after slipping on first base

Maikel Franco

Maikel Franco left Sunday night’s game after slipping on first base.

The Philadelphia Phillies third baseman legged out an infield single in the top of the eighth inning against the Washington Nationals. As he stepped on the base, he slipped and fell to the ground.

Franco was removed from the game and replaced by Mitch Walding.

Watching the incident prompted at least one reporter to say MLB should do something about its bases.

The incident reminded many of the way Bryce Harper injured his knee last year, causing him to miss over a month towards the end of the season. Maybe this is something MLB needs to address.
