Indians first baseman Lonnie Chisenhall stepped up to the plate with two outs in the top of the ninth inning of the contest at Comerica Park. He was facing a 1-0 count against Tigers lefty Jairo Labourt before he eyed a second offering. Chisenhall smacked the next pitch, a 96 mph fastball, to the right side. The baseball managed to squeeze in behind first base for a fair ball.
But the speedy hit went right toward the Tigers' ball boy, who had his chair stationed in foul territory. The ball boy cleanly fielded the grounder and walked toward the stands. When he realized what he had done, he pointed toward someone else before shaking his head in disbelief.
The Indians' Giovanny Urshela came around from second base to score on the play and make the score 11-1.
