MLB teams usually aren't afraid to utilize an infield shift for hitters who tend to pull the ball, but the Los Angeles Dodgers went a bit extreme with this one.

In the bottom of the 12th inning on Friday night with the bases loaded against the San Diego Padres, the Dodgers used a four-infielder shift, moving everyone to the right side of the infield. The move ended up paying off, with the Dodgers getting a fielder's choice at home for the second out to stay alive.

Unfortunately for the Dodgers, Yasmani Grandal ended up hitting a walk-off single shortly after to give the Padres the 3-2 win.
