There was a bit of confusion in the Cleveland Indians' Tuesday night game versus the Cincinnati Reds, especially on the part of Indians right fielder David Murphy.

With Murphy on first, Cleveland's Yan Gomes doubled off of the right field wall. During the relay throw back in, an errant ball came flying in from the Reds bullpen.

A perplexed Murphy rounded third after seeing the extra ball lying in the grass.

The Reds quickly tossed the "real" ball to third and tagged Murphy out.

The Indians were not pleased, as they ended up losing the game 9-2.
