It happened this way: A.J. Ellis popped out to center field off right-hander Roberto Hernandez, Andre Ethier tagged to score, Uribe tagged to third and Skip Schumaker tagged to second. However, Rays first baseman James Loney caught Wil Myers' throw from the outfield near the mound, flipped it to shortstop Yunel Escobar, who tossed the ball to third baseman Evan Longoria. Longoria stood behind third base, out of Uribe's sight, and waited for Uribe to lift his foot off the bag.
When it happened, Longoria placed the tag on Uribe's thigh. Umpire Angel Hernandez called Uribe out on the 8-3-6-5 double play.
"I just kind of waited there, and he barely took his foot off the base and I tagged him," Longoria told MLB.com. "Thankfully, Angel Hernandez was right on the play as well. He kind of stuck with the ball and made the call."
"It's something you can laugh about now," Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said. "Honestly, it's really something you should learn from. It's a mistake you don't want to make in a big game or a game that it can cost you one way or another."
The Dodgers found a way to laugh about it, all right. Teammates presented Uribe with a gift after the game: A shoe taped to a base.
