Brayan Pena knocked in the winning run for Detroit in the top of the 14th inning Wednesday night only to get knocked over in the bottom of the frame.
With two outs, Dustin Ackley smacked a double into right field, and Justin Smoak didn’t hesitate to attempt to score the potential tying run from first. But Prince Fielder’s relay throw to Pena was on the money, and the 5-foot-9 catcher braced for the nasty collision with the 6-foot-4 first basemen to come away with the final out and the victory.
Lying face down and looking stunned, Pena held up the ball as proof that the Tigers hung on — literally — to beat Seattle 2-1. Check out the painful final play that ended the lengthy contest below.
