Will Venable home run confuses everyone

This is one of the most bizarre home runs I've ever seen. In the second inning of the Marlins-Padres game on Tuesday night, Padres outfielder Will Venable hits a fly ball to right field off of Marlins starter Alex Sanabia. Miami right fielder Marcell Ozuna settles down to make the catch in normal depth in right field as San Diego's announcers prepare to call the fly out…only the ball doesn't land in Ozuna's glove. It instead lands over the right field fence for a home run. Even Venable himself didn't realize the ball was going to be out, slowing his trot once he reached the first base bag and coming to a complete stop before starting his run around the bases.

I have no idea what happened on this play, but it's pretty bizarre.
