LSU’s Raph Rhymes finishes inside-the-park homer with unintentional somersault

Raph RhymesIn the bottom of the 6th inning in their Thursday game against Ole Miss, LSU outfielder Raph Rhymes hit shot to the gap that got under the glove of outstretched Rebels centerfielder Auston Bousfield, and ended up going all the way to the wall. Rhymes got on his horse and bypassed the easy stand-up triple for a chance at an inside-the-park home run. The relay throw home was off the mark which caused Ole Miss catcher Stuart Turner to have to come up the line a bit, which resulted in Turner unintentionally taking out Rhymes at the knees, sending him head-over-heels.

The Tigers leftfielder landed hard but still managed to touch home plate for the inside-the-park homer, which put LSU up 5-o at the time, en route to their 7-1 victory. The win gave 47-7 LSU 22 wins in the SEC , which tied the single season team record set in 1986 and 1997.
