Dodgers Win Thanks to a Yasiel Puig Walk-Off Little League Homer (Video)
The Los Angeles Dodgers were losing to the Washington Nationals in the bottom of the ninth before Yasiel Puig hit a walk-off, inside-the-park home run, thanks to a big error from Nats center fielder Michael Young. Young misplayed the rolling ball in the outfield, letting it go past him and allowing Puig and one other run to score.
Here’s the crazy clip:

And the call from Scully:
The hit was ruled a single, with the extra bases coming as a result of the error.
Taylor also managed to help the Dodgers by going 0-5 at the plate…with five strikeouts…as the Nats’ leadoff hitter!!! I don’t know if you can give a game ball to an opposing player, but Taylor seems to have earned it.
