Everth Cabrera steals home, Will Venable follows, Padres win


Top of the 9th... down by one...runners on 2nd and 3rd...2 outs...2 strikes

Cabrera looks third base coach Glenn Hoffman right in the eye and says "I'm going to steal home plate"

Hoffman places both hands on his face and says "You better be sure" then kisses him on the mouth.

Then this happened.

Pant full of bone.

Hoffman said in his post game interview that he thought Cabrera meant he was going to steal during the wind up. Hoffman was caught by surprise when Cabrera took off when Jansen turned his back. He said Venable didn't know that Cabrera was going to steal either. Fortunately Hoffman saw the ball against the fence and continued to wave Venable around to score.
