Ray's Wil Myers easily scores on inside-the-park home run in Yankee Stadium

Tampa Bay Rays right fielder Wil Myers pulled off the somewhat rare inside-the-park home run, a three run home run at that. The inside-the-park home run usually requires a missed catch along the wall and a ball taking a weird bounce and a speedy runner. This one is more the result of lazy play from right fielder Carlos Beltran.

Center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury tried to make a play along the wall but missed the ball falling to his back in the process. The ball rolled towards right field but Beltran hadn’t backed up and by the time he threw the ball Myers was already rounding third base.
