Video: Giants ball girl goofs and tries to catch foul ball

San Francisco Giants third basemen Joaquin Arias found himself in an odd position Monday night at AT&T Park when he had to compete with his team's own ball girl to catch a foul ball.

The moment came with two outs in the top of the ninth inning against the visiting Red Sox, when hitter Stephen Drew fouled an 0-2 pitch high in the air and off near the third base side of the stands.

It was here when the ball girl suddenly had a lapse of judgement and attempted to flag down the foul pop for herself. Fortunately for here, Arias wound up making the catch instead, thus saving her a whole lot of grief from fans.
