Mitch Moreland’s pinch-hit three-run blast in Game 4 (2018)
After pitching five scoreless innings of Game 4, Boston Red Sox lefty Eduardo Rodriguez had an epic meltdown in the bottom of the sixth. A hit-by-pitch, double, intentional walk, and throwing error had already plated one run for the Dodgers, and Yasiel Puig put the dagger in E-Rod by launching a hard liner into the bleachers for a three-run shot, causing E-Rod to throw down his glove in frustration.
He should have been frustrated. With a four-run lead in the later innings, the Dodgers were poised to win their second game in a row and tie up the series, with one more to play in the City of Angels.
Even though Steve Pearce was the story of the remainder of the game (game-tying home run, go-ahead double), Moreland’s blast put life back into the Sox and made it a game again. The best part of the video is Yasiel Puig not moving a step after Moreland connects.
