D-Backs Player Steals Home On Catcher's Throw Back To Pitcher (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Colorado Rockies catcher Mike McKenry and reliever Rex Brothers didn't see it coming.

With Arizona's David Peralta extending his lead on third base, McKenry floated his throw back to the mound after a high and outside pitch. Immediately as the throw left McKenry's hand, Peralta took off. Brothers couldn't get a grip on the ball as Peralta scored easily without a throw back to home plate.

"I can guarantee you that in my whole, entire career, that will never happen again," McKenry said after Colorado's 5-3 loss on Friday night, via The Denver Post. "So it’s on me. I already apologized to Rex and I feel terrible about it. It’s not like me, but we are all human, we all make mistakes. … I tossed it back without truly paying attention."
