Watch: Avisail Garcia’s Effort At Throwing Out Winning Run Was … Less Than Stellar

(CBS) With one out and Tigers teammate JaCoby Jones on third base in the bottom of the ninth inning of a 2-2 tie on Wednesday afternoon, Tyler Collins lifted a shallow fly ball to left field.

White Sox outfielder Avisail Garcia handled the rest in regards to making sure the contest would end.

With the game on the line, Garcia jogged to the fly ball. Instead of getting behind the ball and having forward momentum, he caught it off to his left side. Garcia then double pumped — all while blowing a bubble with his gum — and tossed a multi-hopper that landed around the pitcher’s mound.

Jones easily scored the winning run. Take a look below.
