The house run would have put Pittsburgh up 1-0 within the first inning and given Hayes his second dwelling run in 5 video games. 

The missed bag by Hayes is the newest miscue for a Pirates group that has struggled within the 2021 season. Earlier within the yr, they have been the topic of one other viral mistake as first baseman Will Craig tried chasing down Cubs shortstop Javier Baez on what ought to have been a groundout, however that finally allowed a run to attain and Baez to achieve second. Had Craig simply stepped again and touched first base as an alternative of operating after Baez, who had turned and bolted again towards the batter’s field, the Pirates would’ve escaped the inning trailing by solely a run. 

However the Pirates aren’t the one group to lose a house run on a baserunning blunder. On Opening Day, Dodgers middle fielder Cody Bellinger cleared the left area wall for a house run; nevertheless, third baseman Justin Turner, who had simply run previous second base and began retreating again towards first, thought the fly ball was an out and had not gone over the fence.

Rounding the bases is meant to be the best a part of the house run. However clearly, generally, it is nonetheless not that straightforward.
