MLB Rookie outside player Jo Adell accidentally threw the ball over the field wall on Sunday, giving the opposing team a “run home” during the Los Angeles Angels match against the Texas Rangers.
Nick Solak hit the ball hard on the bottom of the fifth which went deep into the right field and Adell started to repeat and it seemed like there was a kick in it. The ball, however, ended up jumping its handle and over the wall, devoting a run to the Angels.
Solak was initially given a home win, but that was later changed to a four-point error at Adell after official scorer Larry Bump consulted with the Elias Sports Bureau.

This news comes as the rest of the MLB season still remains in doubt due to coronavirus concerns.
