OOPS! Cody Bellinger Hit a Two-Run Home Run That Counted for One Run

Baseball Is Fun

Well you don’t see this everyday!

In the top of the 3rd inning today, Justin Turner hit a one-out single off German Marquez, which brought Cody Bellinger to the plate. And on the third pitch of his at-bat, Bellinger launched a fly ball the opposite way, as Turner took off for second and rounded the bag. HOWEVER, while the ball did find the glove of Rockies left-fielder Raimel Tapia, he pulled a Jose Canseco and let it pop out of his glove and over the left field wall for a home run.

Unfortunately, Turner thought it was caught and began retreating back to first … which is where the oopsie came in.

Turner was called out and a two-run homer counted for just one run.
