VIDEO: Hanley Ramirez Glove Toss Leads To Force Out

Hanley Ramirez was in the Los Angeles Dodgers’ lineup for the second consecutive game after returning from a strained oblique injury Sunday.

Ramirez’s first game back was an 0-for-4 effort with two strikeouts that also included forgettable defensive plays. Ramirez fielded a grounder in the third inning of Sunday’s loss and threw short of first base, which then led to a New York Mets home run.

The error was initially charged to Ramirez, but later was changed to Adrian Gonzalez. Although a game late, Ramirez worked on atoning for his troubles. He first caught a line drive in the second that ended the inning rather than allowing the Arizona Diamondbacks to take a 3-2 lead.

Then in the fourth with the Dodgers holding a comfortable lead, Ramirez fielded a chopper that hit off Roberto Hernandez’s glove and flipped the ball from his glove to Dee Gordon to record the force out at second base and nearly turned a double play.

The Dodgers went on to win the game, 9-5.
