Los Angeles Dodgers rookie right fielder Yasiel Puig had some trouble with a fly ball in the ninth inning of Wednesday's NLCS Game 5 after losing it in the sun.

St. Louis Cardinals batter Matt Holliday hit the fly ball to right field, and Puig seemed to turn away at the last minute and let the ball drop. Based on the video, we can't dispute Puig's claim that the sun was in his eyes.

Holliday did come around to score on an RBI single from Matt Adams, the first of two Cardinals runs in the inning. Fortunately, the Dodgers had enough of a buffer to hold off the late rally and win the game 6-4 to force Game 6 in St. Louis.
