Todd Frazier falls into camera well to save Johnny Cueto’s bacon

Johnny Cueto is getting absolutely pounded early on in Pittsburgh, allowing three runs in the first three innings and getting so rattled by a raucous PNC Park crowd that he dropped the ball right out of his hand while preparing to throw a pitch.

The score could be a lot worse than 3-0 through three if it weren't for Reds third baseman Todd Frazier. With two on and two out in the second and the Pirates holding a 2-0 lead, Neil Walker hit a pop-up down the third base line. Frazier ran to the railing in front of the camera well, extended for the ball, made the catch, and fell into the well, though his feet managed to stay on the railing the entire time. That catch ended the inning and Pittsburgh's scoring threat, but they added another run in the third and have Cueto sweating through the first third of the game.
