June 22 (UPI) -- St. Louis Cardinals outfielder Marcell Ozuna made poor judgement, climbing the wall for a ball that landed on the field against the Milwaukee Brewers.

Ozuna's play -- or lack thereof -- came in an 11-3 loss Thursday at Miller Park in Milwaukee.

The Cardinals led 1-0 in the bottom of the first inning. Cardinals starter Carlos Martinez began the inning by getting Eric Thames to ground out. He then allowed back-to-back singles from Christian Yelich and Lorenzo Cain.

Martinez struck out Travis Shaw before Brewers first baseman Jesus Aguilar stepped to the plate. Aguilar fouled off his first offering, before sending an 83.4-mph slider to center field.

Ozuna surveyed the flight of the ball and sprinted to the outfield wall. He scaled the wall and held on to the top before watching it casually land on the warning track in front of him.

The Brewers scored two runs on the play and Aguilar ended up with a double. Jonathan Villar struck out to end the inning.

Ozuna also had a bad day at the plate, going 0-for-4 with two strikeouts. The Cardinals had four errors on the night, not including Ozuna's play.

The two-time All-Star has three errors this season.
