Tigers Give Up Two Blooper-Reel Homers to Indians' Jose Ramirez in Same Game

By Anthony Blake

They may not have bounced off of the outfielders’ heads, but that’s about the only reason why the pair of blooper-reel home runs surrendered by the Detroit Tigers to Cleveland Indians third baseman Jose Ramirez aren’t the worst in history.

The first was a real doozy that bounced twice on the wall prior to being inexplicably swatted over by Tigers outfielder Mikie Mahtook.

Well, that’s a new one.

Then came a strange-looking homer that bounced up at the top of the wall and was signaled as a round-tripper by the umpire.

All in all, Ramirez went 5-for-5 on the day with three doubles and these two home runs.

That made him just the 11th player in MLB history to have five extra-base hits in one game.

Thanks, Tigers.
