TMZ has obtained a 15-second clip of Bryan Stow in Dodger Stadium before the beating that left the Giants fan in a coma.

In the video, Stow, wearing a Giants jersey, is having some sort of dispute with a Dodgers fan.  The fan in question is not Giovanni Ramirez, the suspect from the beating currently behind bars on a probation violation.  Ramirez has said he wasn’t at Dodger Stadium at the time of the attack.

To see the clip, head over to TMZ here.

According to the report, the LAPD is looking to obtain the original video as part of its investigation.

Stow, 42, is believed to have been beaten by two men in the parking lot after the April 5 game between the Giants and Dodgers.  He remains in a medically induced coma nearly three months later.

Phillies outfielder Odubel Herrera‘s streak of reaching base safely has ended after 45 consecutive games. He went 0-for-4 with three strikeouts in Sunday’s 5-1 loss to the Cardinals.

Herrera’s streak tied Chuck Klein for the fourth-longest on-base streak in Phillies history. The only longer streaks were done by Mike Schmidt (56), Klein again (49), and Bobby Abreu (48). It’s the longest on-base streak in the majors since Freddie Freeman reached base in 46 consecutive games from August 6 to September 28, 2016. Jayson Werth also got to 46 in a row June 20 through August 18 that same year.

After Sunday’s 0-fer, Herrera is batting .344/.411/.544 with seven home runs, 30 RBI, and 24 runs scored in 180 plate appearances. He leads the National League in batting average, and ranks sixth and ninth in slugging percentage.
