Jeremy Jeffress entered the game in the 10th inning with the wrong uniform

Putting on a baseball uniform is a pretty involved process. In addition to the shirt, pants and shoes, there's also a belt, a hat, a glove and various other elements from shin guards to eye black. That adds up to ... well ... a lot of items to coordinate.
After nine innings of the Brewers' 7-2 loss to the Cubs Monday night, the game was still tied, 2-2, and the Brewers called on Jeremy Jeffress to pitch the 10th inning, but something seemed off ...
On the right is third baseman Hernán Pérez when he came up to bat in the bottom of the ninth inning. On the left is Jeffress on the mound half an inning later. Can you spot the difference?

Despite being aesthetically out of sync, Jeffress was in sync on the mound, striking out two in a 1-2-3 half inning out of the bullpen. Even so, it'll probably be a good idea for Jeffress to double check that he's wearing the same uniform as everyone else before he steps out to the mound next time.
