Nyjer Morgan
August 28, 2010: St. Louis @ Washington

Situation: Nationals have the bases loaded in the bottom of the 8th.

Willie Harris hits a double to clear the bases. However, Nyjer Morgan, the runner on 1st, misses home plate after running into C Bryan Anderson. Ivan Rodriguez, who just scored, pushes Morgan back toward the plate, and Nyjer touches home before being tagged.
