If baseball players didn’t wear cleats, Tyler Flowers would have earned himself a dinger in his first at-bat tonight. But because outfielders have those spikes on their feet, the Braves catcher’s long fly ball to center field was hauled in by the Cubs’ Albert Almora Jr., who dug his cleats into the wall to gain some precious extra hangtime on the robbery.

If the Braves are feeling petty, they should make Almora pay for that damage.
