luis-castillo-error.jpgIn what has to be one of the more brutal ways to lose a baseball game, New York Mets second baseman Luis Castillo dropped a pop fly and apparent final out against the New York Yankees last evening.

His team down by one with runners on the corners and sitting on a 3-1 fastball, Alex Rodriguez skied a can of corn pop-up to shallow right field, slamming down his bat in disgust. But, Castillo staggered to his left to make the play and had the ball pop out of his mitt, scoring the runner from third. When Castillo failed to check a hustling Mark Teixiera rounding third and threw the ball to second base, the slugging first baseman raced home with the winning run.
