Chris Young said he has no excuse for dropping a routine fly ball in right field to start the 14th inning on Friday night.
Marlon Byrd, who was safe because of the dropped pop up, eventually scored the game-winning run.
“It was just a flub up,'” Young said. “It was like I’m looking dead at it, the ball’s coming down, and I just completely lost it. I got a little blurry. It’s like I didn’t even see it. I don’t know why it happened, but there’s no excuse. Big mistake. The game, where if you play that long, you want to be able to win. For me not to come up with that play, it sucks.”
Young started the game on the bench, then went hitless with a walk in three plate appearances. He’s hitting .202 this season.
