Braves Beat Pirates In 19 Innings Thanks To The Worst Call In Baseball History (Video)
The Marlins’ Logan Morrison Was Attacked By A Praying Mantis Last Night (Video)
Nothing was going to throw the Florida Marlins batters off their game last night. Not Washington Nationals starter Ryan Zimmerman. Not the 24,650 fans in attendance at Nationals Park. And certainly not a praying mantis.
The latter made its way into the Marlins dugout in the top of the ninth inning, but even an attack on left fielder Logan Morrison couldn’t halt Florida’s offensive outburst, as they recorded five runs in the frame, increasing their lead to 11-2. That nine-run cushion made it much easier for the Marlins players to get a laugh out of the sight of Morrison dancing around in an attempt to escape the grasps of this praying mantis.
