Nick Punto giveth, Nick Punto taketh away.

Last night in a massive Game 3 tilt that would either put St. Louis a game away from the World Series or see the Dodgers tie the best-of-seven at two, Punto ripped a double over the head of center fielder Jon Jay, checking in to second with a one-out double with LA down two in the seventh.

Hitting a ball over the center fielder's head? Not very Nick Punto-ish.

Before St. Louis pitcher Carlos Martinez threw another pitch, Punto reminded the baseball world that he is indeed, still Nick Punto.

Does that look familiar? It should, here's his most famous Minnesota Twins baserunning gaffe, coming in Game 3 of the 2009 ALDS, which ended up being Minnesota's last Metrodome appearance.

Slick Nick, you sly devil, will you never learn?
