Robles holds the major league career record for most times being caught stealing without actually successfully swiping a bag. He tried to steal eight times and was caught every single time. All 8 attempts came in his rookie season, 2005, when he was a member of the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Robles was 4 for 13 with a walk, 2 homers, 4 runs and 3 RBI in the 2009 World Baseball Classic, splitting the shortstop role for Mexico with Augie Ojeda. Oscar got 3 of his hits in one game against South Africa, only hitting 1 for 7 in the other contests. His other hit was a big one, as it was a solo homer off Luis Miguel Rodríguez that gave Mexico a 2-1 lead against Cuba; Cuba would rally on the way to a 16-4 win, however.
