The dominican Manny machado saved the game with a move brilliant to make a double play off a hit by Albert Pujols in the MLB.
In a game that was close all the time, where the Dodgers had two runners in position with just one out in the ninth inning, Mark Melancon shooting and Albert Pujols at bat, one play defined the turn.
There is no doubt that Albert Pujols had excellent contact with a Melancon break, however, Manny machado was in the perfect position, making a shot to second to make out the runner who tried to run with the hit, thus ending the game MLB.
