Rays’ Myers hits a Three-Run Inside the Park Home Run
Tampa Bay Rays right fielder Wil Myers did something that is very hard to accomplish in baseball.
In the top of the 3rd inning of today’s game between the Rays and the New York Yankees, Myers took advantage of Yanks pitcher CC Sabathia’s early season struggles.
With runners on 1st and 2nd and one out, the Rays outfielder hit a deep ball to right center, missing an out-of-the-park home run by inches.
NY center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury made a valient effort at making a jumping catch against the wall, but just missed the opportunity.
Due to the failed defensive effort by Ellsbury, Myers was able to sprint around the bases for a three-run inside-the-park home run, giving the Rays a four-run lead. That was all for CC who went to the showers early.
Here’s the video of Myers’ inside-the-parker:
