Max Muncy Speaks Out His Game-Deciding Error

A wild ending happened in Philadelphia today between the Dodgers and Phillies.

Max Muncy's two-run fielding error in the 10th capped a wild late-inning sequence and allowed the Philadelphia Phillies to beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 4-3 on Sunday.

With two outs and men on second and third in the 10th, Alec Bohm hit a little dribbler off Evan Phillips (1-2) to Muncy at second for what appeared to be the final out of the inning. But Muncy didn't field it cleanly, allowing Garrett Stubbs to score the tying run and Roman Quinn to bring in the winning run just ahead of the throw home. An emotion Max Muncy spoke after the game:

"It was a long, hot day. The field dried out a little bit. I just didn’t give myself enough space knowing that the ball is gonna bounce a little higher on a drier field. The ball hopped on me. I just didn’t make the play."

Dodgers will face off against the Washington Nationals coming up this week.
