Good morning! Here are the plays everybody will be talking about Tuesday:
In Miami, even if the ball doesn’t leave the field, it might still be a home run. Bryce Harper hit what appeared to be a single off the right-field wall at Marlins Park. However, the umpires quickly ruled the ball a home run. It turns out you don’t have to necessarily hit the ball over the wall, just high enough off of the wall.
Cody Bellinger can’t stop hitting home runs, especially when Clayton Kershaw is pitching. Kershaw had a rare bad outing, giving up six runs, and a career-high four home runs, against the Mets. However, his mates were there to bail him out, especially Bellinger. The rookie hit two home runs, giving him 21 home runs in his first 51 career games. That is the most in Major League history. His 21 home runs since April 25 are also four more than anybody else in baseball.
FC Barcelona’s youth team scored the goal of the day. Gerard Hernández had the goal of the week in a La Liga youth tournament.
