Kevin Kiermaier Just Robbed Jason Kipnis of a Homer to End the Game … His Reaction is Everything

Incredible Plays

Earlier this week, I quipped that Byron Buxton could be on his way towards becoming baseball’s best defensive center field. However, if he’s going to do that, he’ll have to go through Kevin Kiermaier first.

Almost inarguably baseball’s best defensive center fielder, Kevin Kiermaier just ended today’s Rays/Indians contest with a home run robbery of Jason Kipnis in the bottom of the ninth inning.

Check it out:

Yeah, if it all possible, I would suggest not hitting baseballs towards Kiermaier. After all, he’s obviously playing with an advantage:


But my favorite part of everything was Kipnis’ reaction afterwords:

It’s the perfect combination of “Seriously, bro?” and “No effing way.” Sorry, Jason, maybe next time.
