Tigers LF Caused a HR to Bounce Over the Wall on Sunday, Was Robbed of One on Monday in the Exact Same Spot!


Recently, we had some fun at the expense of Tigers left fielder, Mikie Mahtook when he pulled something of a “Canseco-lite” knocking a ball from the field of play over the wall for a homer.



Yeah – pretty embarrassing, but pretty funny, right?

Well, Mahtook might’ve had a sense of humor about that gaffe initially, but I’m starting to wonder if he thinks there’s a raincloud hovering over his head. Because yesterday afternoon, he hit a fly ball out to almost exactly the same spot … but the Royals left fielder, Alex Gordon, is … eh hem … a little more competent with the glove.

Take a look:


While Mahtook took a ball from the field of play to home run territory, Alex Gordon did the opposite, reeling in a would-be homer.

And did you catch Mahtook’s reaction as he rounded first?

That’s what happiness draining out of a body looks like, folks.
