Deven Marrero hit a homerun to left centerfield, but had it turned into a single by his teammate Alex Avila’s baserunning mistake.
Avila was inexplicably heading back to first base as the ball flew over the fence and Marrero was rounding first base.
Marrero passed Avila on the basepath and his three run homerun was turned into a two run single. What a stupid mistake.
Avila needs drop some cash on Marrero’s lap for robbing him of a homerun. This ball wasn’t ever going to be caught and only a blind person would have been returning to first base on this play.
Deven Marrero clobbers what looks like his first HR with the @Dbacks, but after review is called out for passing Alex Avila on the bases. Marrero is credited with a 2-run single and the #Dbacks lead 5-1 in the fourth. pic.twitter.com/3u1iEvuejn
