Blown call costs Yasiel Puig an assist after phenomenal 280-foot throw

Yasiel Puig—not an All-Star, according to some of his fellow big leaguers—made a play Friday that was worthy of any of the men who were at Citi Field this week.
The Dodgers' rookie outfielder showed off his cannon arm as the Nationals' Bryce Harper—a two-time All-Star—tried to advance from second to third on a fly ball.

Dodgers third baseman Juan Uribe appeared to tag out Harper, but third-base umpire Eric Cooper called Harper safe.
The close call proved to be important, as Harper later scored on a wild pitch by LA starter Ricky Nolasco.
LA won the game, 3-2, on a solo home run by Andre Ethier in the ninth inning.
