VIDEO: Giants score three runs on dribbler thanks to D-Backs’ blunders

Diamondbacks fielders are still shaking off the rust from the winter, it seems.

Diamondbacks fielders are still shaking off the rust from the winter, it seems.

During Monday’s game against the Giants, a pair of errors allowed San Francisco to score three runs on what should have been a fairly routine out.

Pitcher Matt Moore was at the plate with the bases loaded and hit a weak dribbler up the first base line. Taijuan Walker’s throw home was well wide, allowing one run to score; Jeff Mathis’s throw back to the plate was also off the mark, allowing a second run to come in and Jarrett Parker hustled home to score the third run.

It was like something you’d see in a Little League game.

Because of the two errors, Moore was only credited with one RBI, his first since June 9, 2012.
