Rajai Davis loses two fly balls in the sun in one inning
You want to see a bad individual inning? This might be the worst of the young season so far.
Cleveland Indians center fielder Rajai Davis had to deal with a rather imposing sun on Sunday against the Mets, but not even he could have imagined the trouble he’d have trying to catch fly balls.
Two times in the span of four batters, Davis was faced with two fly balls that should have been routine, but even with his sunglasses and his glove, Davis had no chance.

They ended up being a triple and a double, respectively. Both came with two outs. The first came with nobody on, so it would have ended the inning and thus led to two runs. The second misplay led to a third run. Basically, it was the worst possible combination of scenarios.
Cleveland lost 6-0, and Davis will want to put this behind him quickly. At least you can understand what happened on those plays, unlike what happened here in the same ballpark.
