VIDEO, GIF: Double, David Ortiz; Assist, Wil Myers

In the fourth inning of the Rays-Red Sox ALDS game on Friday, David Ortiz lifted a fly ball -- deep but ultimately routine -- to right-center. Wil Myers called it all the way, but then this happened as he and Desmond Jennings converged on the ball ...

Not optimal! Here's a look from another angle in lucky-best GIF format ...

As the broadcast noted, it's possible Myers was actually fooled by a faux call-off from someone in the crowd. Such are the occupational hazards of playing on the road. With fans there and everything.

In any event, that pratfall allowed the first Boston run to score in what turned out to be a five-run inning.
