Rangers right fielder Nelson Cruz did not have the greatest Tuesday night. First, he, along with more than 20 others linked to Anthony Bosch's Biogenesis clinic, were reported to be in line for suspensions. Then, in Tuesday's game against the Red Sox, he not only missed Mike Carp's fourth homer of the year with his glove, but also ate bullpen as he toppled over the fence in right:
The best part about this might be Franklin Morales' reaction, as he doesn't even stop stretching with Cruz flipping in front of him, but just takes a step back instead. It's that, or our mystery jacketed bullpen dweller who makes the catch Cruz could not.
Cruz didn't get up right away, but walked out through the bullpen door and remained in the game until the score dictated he probably shouldn't -- the Red Sox won 17-5, and it was only that close because their mop-up guy forgot to bring his mop.
