Tampa Bay Rays third baseman Yandy Diaz hit a Little League home run in the top of the sixth inning against the Boston Red Sox on Sunday. He bounced the pitch out to right field, and the outfielder tossed the ball to second base.

With a batter already on first, the Rays stole a run as the Sox catcher, Connor Wong, failed to beat him to home plate. Wong then threw a wild attempt back out toward second place that sailed into the outfield, allowing Diaz to stroll into home plate.

Check out the video below for the entire glorious disaster:

Just last week, the San Diego Padres pulled off the same feat at Yankee Stadium after a series of errors by the defense.
