It's been a rough few days for outfielders in the warning track.

Just two days after Auburn allowed a walk-off home run that bounced off the right fielder's glove, the phenomenon struck in the big leagues.

This time, Pirates left fielder Austin Meadows was the victim.

When Diamondbacks outfielder David Peralta hit a line drive to deep left field, Meadows had room to make a play on the ball. The ball hit off the side of Meadows' glove and softly deflected over the wall for a home run.

As replays would show, Meadows had it in his glove but simply couldn't make the catch.

The Pirates would get those runs back, though, and take a 4-2 lead in the third inning.
