Blue Jays Pitcher Soderstrom Collides with Blue Jays Player During A’s Game in Unusual Play

At Oakland Coliseum, during the Athletics’ series finale against the Toronto Blue Jays on Sunday, a strange moment occurred in the top of the 10th inning. The lack of dugout rails at the stadium led to a confusing collision between Blue Jays pitcher Yusei Kikuchi and A’s first baseman Tyler Soderstrom as they both went for a popup in foul territory. This added to the tension as both teams had something to say about the bizarre play.

Kikuchi later explained that the layout of the Coliseum was to blame for the confusion. He expressed embarrassment over the situation and joked that he wanted to hide in a hole after the collision. Despite this, fans at Oakland Coliseum got more drama than they bargained for with this extra-innings game thanks to this unusual play. Ultimately, it was not enough for A’s as they lost 6-4, resulting in a series loss to Toronto Blue Jays.
