A takeout slide from Chase Utley that didn’t even start until the Dodgers pinch hitter had reached second base broke up a double play but left Mets shortstop Ruben Tejada on a medical cart to be removed from the field. To add insult to injury, umpires refused to grant Tejada the neighborhood play and declared Utley safe.

It’s just one of several injuries already this postseason resulting from plays at second base.
