Miami Marlins catcher J.T. Realmuto had a home run called back on Monday in the bottom of the second inning of a matchup against the Milwaukee Brewers, when he passed centerfielder Marcell Ozuna while rounding the bases.

Realmuto, who had just hit a two-run shot, was given an RBI single after the blast was overturned for overrunning Ozuna while circling the diamond.

Instead of the score being 2–0 in favor of the Marlins, it was reduced to 1–0 after Realmuto’s mistake. The shot would have marked Realmuto’s third home run of the season and his 11th RBI.

Watch the incident below.

The Marlins went on to win the game 4–1.
