Cano thinks Dodgers walked in run, trots home, tagged out

By on April 16, 2015

It’s bad enough being tagged out at third, but Robinson Cano had the added embarrassment of making the biggest blunder of his major-league career.

During the Dodgers’ 5-2 win over the Mariners Wednesday night, reliever Paco Rodriguez walked Seattle’s Logan Morrison to load the bases in the top of the sixth inning. Cano, who was standing at third, thought the bases were already full and began to trot home.


The gaffe didn’t end the inning for the Mariners, but it was a bad time for the ex-Yankee to be so forgetful.

“I didn’t pay attention to the game,” Cano said. “You don’t want that to happen. There was nothing I could do after that. … I’m human. I make mistakes. But those are the kind of things I shouldn’t let happen again.”
