Daniel Robertson had a funny comment about the bizarre double he hit on Saturday.

Robertson’s Milwaukee Brewers beat the St. Louis Cardinals 9-5 at Busch Stadium. In the top of the eighth, Robertson hit a ball off the fence in front of the bullpens in left-center field. The ball then bounced into the air and went over the wall.

Balls typically would go back into play after hitting off a fence like that. Even if they go into the air after hitting the fence, they usually go back into the field. But this one must have hit in a way to develop some weird spin that sent it backward.

Robertson thinks he knows the cause: aliens.

That’s just as plausible as anything else.

Robertson got credit for a ground-rule double and missed out on an RBI chance as a result. His Brewers still won 9-5, and at least he got to experience some sorcery.
