Video: Pirates’ Ke’Bryan Hayes loses home run after missing first base
Ke’Bryant Hayes suffered a terrible fate on Tuesday due to quite a blunder on the bases.
Hayes was batting in the bottom of the second of his Pittsburgh Pirates’ game against the Los Angeles Dodgers. He sent a Walker Buehler pitch deep to right that cleared the fence for what should have been a home run. Unfortunately, Hayes failed to step on first base. The Dodgers realized this and challenged.
Something you don't see every day!

Hayes was called out due to his blunder. He ended up 1-for-4 in the game, as his Pirates lost 5-3.
Hayes now has something in common with Cody Bellinger, who also lost a home run this season due to a baserunning issue.
