Marcell Ozuna climbed the wall pursuing a fly ball -- but the ball didn't make it that far
But if there's one thing baseball reminds us of on a daily basis, it's that it isn't afraid to humble you at any time. The first inning of St. Louis' 11-3 loss to the Brewers on Thursday at Miller Park did just that to Ozuna when
Ozuna raced back, scaled the outfield wall and prepared to potentially make a home run-robbing play. The problem? Well, the baseball hit off the wall rather than over it, rolling far enough for Aguilar to wind up at second with a two-run double:
Good wall climb, though!
"I kind of hit it good, until I saw Ozuna jump," Aguilar told MLB.com's Stephen Cohn after the game. "But I thought I got lucky on that play."
Explained Ozuna to MLB.com's Joe Trezza:
"I thought the ball was going out, and I went up to rob it, and I looked up and it was below me. I saw the ball carrying, carrying, carrying, and then I got turned around … at the end it was a bad read."
