In a moment of profound muscle confusion, Ronald Belisario forgot how to float an easy outside ball while attempting to intentionally walk Michael Brantley at the end of Monday night’s game between the Tampa Bay Rays and the Cleveland Indians.

Facing a two-run deficit with runners on second and third, Belisario lofted a high-arcing ball of yarn wide of the plate. All 5’10” of Rene Rivera attempted to reel in the wild pitch, but the ball sailed past his glove and skipped to the backstop, bringing home Jason Kipnis from third.

The bizarre mistake helped Cleveland turn the game into a 7-1 rout. Best of all, Kipnis looked completely winded after running from third to home.

I made a bumper sticker to celebrate your 90-foot race, Jason: 

Good job. Good effort.
