Kyle Stowers Hits Crazy First-Career Home Run

It was as crazy of a first-career home run as it gets. 

The Baltimore Orioles trailed the Chicago White Sox 3-2 heading into the bottom of the ninth. The White Sox's All-Star closer Liam Hendriks induced an Anthony Santander pop-up, before getting Ryan Mountcastle to strike out swinging. 

They were down to their last out and rookie Kyle Stowers came to the plate. 

The game appeared to be over when Stowers hit a pop-up into foul territory with Adam Engel coming underneath ready to make the catch. However, Engel appeared to take his eyes off the ball for a split second, causing the ball to deflect off his glove, thus continuing the at-bat for Stowers. 

What happened next was crazy. Hendriks delivered the 0-2 pitch which Stowers took 404 feet away to center field for a game-tying home run, making Engel pay dearly for his error. 

The Orioles went on to win the game, making Stowers' first career home run that much more special.
