GIF: Kevin Kiermaier almost passes Jose Molina during home run trot
Jose Molina was almost passed on the bases by a teammate who hit a home run.
The Rays beat the Athletics on Wednesday afternoon (TB 7, OAK 3), thanks in part to outfielder Kevin Kiermaier's two-run home run. It was a pretty standard homer, nothing special about it, except that Kiermaier nearly passed Jose Molina while trotting around the bases.
To the action footage:
Molina was on first base after beating out an infield single of all things. The slow homer trot was probably because he was still gassed from the infield hit. Yeah, that's it.
