This is why baseball players have to run the bases — even after hitting a homer.

Pirates third baseman Ke’Bryan Hayes went deep off Los Angeles Dodgers starter Walker Buehler in the first inning of Tuesday night’s game in Pittsburgh, but the home run was overturned after the Dodgers challenged it because Hayes didn’t touch first base.

The Dodgers were deemed correct and the umpire called him out, as video clearly showed that Hayes, who was running hard out of the batter’s box, didn’t touch first base following the shot to right field.

This was just another tough break for a Pirates team that entered the night firmly entrenched in the NL Central cellar with a 23-35 record.
