Padres’ Everth Cabrera Steals Home Against Dodgers [VIDEO]

The San Diego Padres managed to beat the Los Angeles Dodgers in one of the most improbable ways you will ever see. 

Los Angeles Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen fell asleep at the wheel against the San Diego Padres on Saturday night.  The right-hander was kicking dirt off of his spikes when pinch runner Everth Cabrera broke for home.  “Dirt got stuck in my shoe and I can’t pitch like that.  I didn’t think to call a timeout,” Jansen said after the game.

Once Jansen realized that Cabrera was attempting to steal home, the closer threw the ball over catcher AJ Ellis’ head.  Jansen compounded the problem by failing to cover home when Will Venable scored.  It was great heads-up baserunning by Venable who scored all of the way from 2nd base.

My favorite part of this video occurs at the very beginning.  Dodger fans are clapping while anticipating an L.A. win while a Padres’ fan looks completely dejected.  Just then, Everth Cabrera breaks for home and the game is completely changed.  It’s one of the craziest finishes to a baseball game that I’ve ever seen.

I can’t imagine if I had heavy Scooby Snacks (aka money) on the Dodgers to win this game and Kenley Jansen pulled this boneheaded move.  I would be beside myself while cursing Jansen’s name repeatedly.  Luckily, there were no bets and no cursing for me.
