Nyjer Morgan completely loses a fly ball at Wrigley Field (Video)

Milwaukee Brewers center fielder Nyjer Morgan completely lost track of a fly ball during Monday's early evening game at Wrigley Field against the Chicago Cubs.


It happened in the bottom of the fifth inning as Cubs catcher Geovany Soto hit a high fly ball into the twilight sky to left-center field. Morgan lost the ball almost immediately and outstretched his arms to indicate that he had no idea where the ball was. The ball landed about 10 feet behind Morgan, and left fielder Ryan Braun came over to help him out, but Soto made it all the way to third base on the play and was credited with a triple.

Soto scored later in the inning on a sacrifice fly. However, the Brewers got the last laugh as they won the game 7-5.
