Watch: Rays' Kiermaier collides with Nava during catch, comes up laughing

Thursday August 27th, 2015

Rays centerfielder Kevin Kiermaier collided with rightfielder Daniel Nava after making a catch off the bat of the Twins' Brian Dozier on Wednesday night in Minnesota's 5–3 win over Tampa Bay.

With two outs in the top of the 8th inning, Dozier sent a fly ball to the outfield in between Kiermaier and Nava. Kiermaier, who can be seen mouthing "I got it," eventually corralled the catch but not before bouncing off a leaping Nava, who tried to soften the blow.

With the out recorded and the half-inning over, the players shook off the collision, high-fived and even shared a laugh on their way back to the dugout. The Twins improved to 65–61, while the Rays fell to 62–64.
