At first glance, it looks as if Rays outfielder Kevin Kiermaier robbed Abreu’s two-run home run over the center-field fence. After the umpires reviewed the play, they found Kiermaier missed the ball, and it landed between the fence and the stands.

The White Sox first baseman tied the game in the 6th inning, but the Rays eventually lost the game 5-4.
