Kike Hernandez makes MLB history

Dodgers super utility man Kiké Hernandez made MLB history late Tuesday night, accomplishing a feat that hadn't been completed since Babe Ruth.

Unfortunately, the history Hernandez made came courtesy of a walk-off home run by Trevor Plouffe surrendered in the bottom of the 16th inning to give the Phillies a 7-4 win.

Hernandez took the mound in relief at the end of the game, with the Dodgers' bullpen depleted.

Per STATS:

Kike Hernandez of the Dodgers is the first player to play the infield, play the outfield and allow 3+ runs on the mound in the same game since Babe Ruth on October 1, 1921. Ruth blew a 6-run lead but got the win in extras. It did not work out so well for the Dodgers tonight.

Also according to STATS, Hernandez also became the first full-time position player in MLB history to surrender a walk-off home run.

Tune in to AM 570 LA Sports at 9:35 a.m. Pacific for the first pitch of Wednesday's series finale.
