Watch from multiple angles and listen to each team's local broadcast call as Cardinals pinch-runner Kolten Wong gets picked off for the final out in the Red Sox's 4-2 victory Sunday in Game 4 of the World Series.
Here is rookie Wong's explanation for his baserunning blunder (to his credit, Wong faced the media at his locker and answered all questions):
Wong, who came in to run after the gimpy Allen Craig had delivered a pinch-hit single, also took to Twitter afterward to express his remorse:
All i want to say is i'm sorry #CardinalNation I go out everyday playing this game as hard as I can and leaving everything on the field.— Kolten Wong (@KoltenWong) October 28, 2013
Although Twitter posts make it clear that not all Cardinals fans were quick to forgive, Wong nonetheless said he was grateful:
I want tho tell everyone thank you for the support.— Kolten Wong (@KoltenWong) October 28, 2013
