If you are looking for the weirdest drama of the open day, then Coors Field is your best choice.
In the third inning of the game between the Dodgers and the Rockies, we witnessed a single scoring single man, who bounced out of the fielder’s glove and over the fence.Wait

After a long discussion with the two managers, despite the ball clearing the fence, the referee awarded Bellinger an RBI single. Turner was allowed to spin at the base, which could give the Dodgers the strangest 1-0 lead that the Dodgers have seen this season.
