Kolten Wong picked off first base for final out of Game 4

To nobody's surprise, racist baseball fans tweet racist things.

Boston took Game 4 when St. Louis Cardinals second baseman Kolten Wong was picked off first base by Red Sox pitcher Koji Uehara for the final out of the game: Koji Uehara picks off Kolten Wong for final out of Game 4.

Wong, a rookie from Hawaii, was pinch-running for Allen Craig, who singled earlier in the inning. Alas, with slugger Carlos Beltran at bat, Wong wasn't even trying to steal. He was just trying to get his lead for the pitch, but his "foot slipped," and he wasn't able to beat the throw to first.

It was the only game-ending pickoff in the World Series history. Here's the play:

This behavior stopped surprising me a long time ago.
