Inside-the-park home runs are a rarity at any level of baseball with a fence, but especially in the major leagues. Inside-the-parkers by catchers are even rarer.
Realmuto ripped a pitch from Taylor Jungmann off the centerfield wall, where it was misjudged by Brewers centerfielder Domingo Santana and rolled into some dead space in right center. It lay more than long enough for Realmuto to get a serious jump on Ryan Braun's throw, which came in off the mark as he crossed the plate standing up, giving Miami a 4–2 lead.
The solo homer was Realmuto's second shot of the game.
