Wil Myers hit an inside-the-park home run against the Yankees on Sunday afternoon, but he was lucky to make it and needed some help from Carlos Beltran.
Myers hit a long drive to right-center field off of CC Sabathia. Myers thought the ball was gone and jogged to first. However, the ball was off the top of the wall and Jacoby Ellsbury got tangled up in the padding on the wall (see full video below).
Here’s a GFY of Myers. If this does not work for you, there is a GIF below.

But where Myers really got lucky was that Carlos Beltran basically just took the play off and wasn’t backing up Ellsbury. Here’s Dave Wills’ call.
