THE PLAY: With the scored tied, 1-1, Shane Victorino led off the fifth inning by lining a ball into the alley in right-center that caromed off Jason Heyward 's glove for a three-base error.
THE SETUP: The teams had traded second-inning runs and Cole Hamels had gotten out of the top half of the inning by striking out Melky Cabrera and Brandon Beachy , stranding Alex Gonzalez , who had doubled with one out.
THE AT-BAT: Batting left against the righthander Beachy, who was making his major league debut, Victorino took a fastball (high) and a changeup (low) outside for balls. He then lined a 2-0 fastball into the right-centerfield gap. Heyward, who didn't get a good read on the ball, stutter-stepped and could only get leather on it, the ball rolling to the wall. Victorino went into third standing.
