Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun was doused with beer attempting to catch a Pete Alonso fly ball hit to left field in the first inning of Sunday afternoon’s game. The fan appeared to have done so on accident, making the poor decision to attempt the catch with the cup of beer still in his hand.

If you refuse to put your beer down attempting to catch a ball, you have to do it one-handed. That’s the rule.

Alonso got a triple on the play, which was reviewed for possible fan interference, and later came around to score on a Todd Frazier single. The Mets won 5-2.

LOS ANGELES — The Los Angeles Dodgers agreed to terms with infielder Miguel Rojas on a one-year, $6 million deal that takes him through the 2024 season.

The contract includes a salary of $5 million in 2024 and a club option salary of $5 million in 2025 with a $1 million buyout and charitable contributions.

The 33-year-old Rojas was acquired last month from the Miami Marlins for minor league infielder Jacob Amaya. He returns to the Dodgers for the second time, having made 85 appearances with the club in 2014 as a rookie.

Rojas hit .236 with six home runs and 36 RBIs in 140 games last season. He’s been in the majors for parts of nine seasons while playing five different defensive positions.
