The rare occurrence happened on consecutive batters in the first inning on Monday night against the Chicago White Sox. It started when Robinson Cano lined an opposite-field shot off the top of the wall in left. The ball hit the yellow line and bounced back on the field and ruled a double. The play was reviewed and the call was confirmed.
The next batter, Corey Hart, hit a ball to deep right, again hitting the yellow line and bouncing back on the field. Umpires ruled it a hit, not a home run, and it was confirmed on replay. Hart was thrown out at second trying to stretch the hit into a double.
