Manuel Margot's attempted steal of home in the bottom of the fourth inning of Game 5 of the World Series on Sunday night fell short.

Margot was tagged out just before getting his hand in safely.

The run would have tied the game at 3, but instead ended the inning and the Los Angeles Dodgers went on to beat the Tampa Bay Rays 4-2.

"I thought I was really close," Margot said afterward. "I really didn't know where they touched me. They didn't challenge."

Replays showed Dodgers catcher Austin Barnes barely getting the tag down on Margot's left hand after Clayton Kershaw stepped off the rubber and fired home.

"It was 100 percent my decision," Margot said. "I thought it was a good idea at the time. I had a pretty good chance of being safe.

"From the first pitch to KK [Kevin Kiermaier], I knew they weren't paying too much attention to me, so I thought I had a chance. Obviously it didn't work out that way."
