Jean Segura atones for error with clutch hit in Phillies' Game 3 win

PHILADELPHIA -- Jean Segura has played 11 seasons in the majors, made two All-Star teams and hit .300 three times, but he's never had an inning quite like the fourth inning of Game 3 of the National League Championship Series on Friday night.

Playing in his first postseason, the Philadelphia Phillies second baseman dropped the relay throw from shortstop Bryson Stott, turning a potential inning-ending double play into a game-tying run for the San Diego Padres.

In the bottom of the inning, however, he redeemed himself with a clutch, two-out, two-strike, two-run single to give the Phillies a 3-1 lead in a game they would hold on to win 4-2 to take a 2-1 series lead.
