LOS ANGELES -- Mets manager Mickey Callaway has spoken of using the best defensive alignments possible on nights that Jacob deGrom pitches, hoping to give the National League Cy Young Award candidate as much help as he can down the stretch. Third baseman Todd Frazier did his part in the second inning of Monday's 4-2 win over the Dodgers at Dodger Stadium, tumbling into the stands to steal an extra out.
With one out, Alex Verdugo lofted a foul pop fly down the third-base line, where Frazier gave chase. The ball landed in Frazier's glove just as he reached the wall, cartwheeling over it and into the front row. As Amed Rosario looked on, a fan in a Justin Turner jersey helped Frazier to his feet, while another tried to disentangle his backpack from Frazier's body.
The effort helped deGrom navigate a perfect second inning, after allowing a Turner homer in the first that put the Dodgers up, 1-0.
