Dodgers Use Extreme 4-Man Shift with Bases Loaded vs. Padres
Tyler BrookeSenior Analyst IIAugust 30, 2014

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.
