Ian Kinsler accidentally stole third base after forgetting the number of outs

On Sunday, the Dodgers and Angels played an exhibition game at Angel Stadium. As a reminder, an exhibition game is exactly that: a practice game, of sorts, until the season officially gets under way on Thursday.

This amusing scenario happened in the sixth inning involving Ian Kinsler on second, Dodgers catcher Yasmani Grandal and third baseman Logan Forsythe -- who was unable to rush over to third in time to get Kinsler:
