LOS ANGELES (KTVI) — The game didn’t give fans much to get excited about when the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Los Angeles Angels 8-2 on Sunday afternoon, but the Dodgers’ ball girl came up big when she “laid out” a fan who went running across the field.

“Reminder: Don’t mess with our ball girls! They lay you out,” Dodgers Nation tweeted.

Security personnel was in pursuit of the fan as he ran toward the stands. But then, the ball girl who was working along the right-field line got in his way and her hit made him flip over the railing.

This gave the security personnel enough time to grab him while he was down. The fan was then arrested.

After the ball girl made the tackle, she stood up right away and appeared not to have any injuries.
