Yankees D Gives Up Ridiculous Inside-the-Park Homer (Video)
Sometimes home runs are achieved through brute force. Sometimes, but less often, it’s blinding speed that gets you around the bases in one go. In this clip from Sunday’s Yankees-Astros game, it’s just bad defense that allows Astros prospect Carlos Correa to take what should have been a deep pop-out and turn it into a four-bagger.
The MLB.com video calls it a “Little League Home Run,” which is awesome because it’s accurate and disparaging to the Yankees at the same time. Win-win.
Yankees outfielders Garrett Jones and Brett Gardner couldn’t decide who would lay claim to the pop fly, so no one did. The rest can be attributed to Brett Garnder failing to pick up a slowly rolling baseball. Twice.
Here’s the clip:
Hard not to like that clip.
