There are star players on every team in the MLB.
That was especially true during Sunday Night Baseball, which featured the San Diego Padres and Los Angeles Dodgers.
Those are two of the top National League squads, and both are loaded with All-Stars.
Mookie Betts, an outfielder for the Dodgers, was one player that had a significant impact on the game.
With two outs in the ninth inning, he smashed a home run to tie the game.
Eduardo Perez, an ESPN analyst, then made a noteworthy statement.
Nando, this is how superstars look, Perez added.
That remark appeared to target Fernando Tatis Jr.
Perez then went on to say that he was sorry for the remark and that was not his intention.

Perez grimaced when he said it and promised to apologize to Tatis for the remark.
Betts’ home run with two outs was a crucial point in the game.
Perez claimed that all he wanted was to capitalize on the situation and give Betts the recognition that he deserved.
Tatis has received a lot of criticism in recent years.
His injuries stemmed from a motorcycle accident that left him injured.
Then he received a suspension for breaking MLB’s drug policy.
But Tatis is without a doubt one of the league’s top performers when he is on the pitch.
He is as dangerous as anyone in the game thanks to his combination of power and speed.
