Rays' Steven Souza can't help but laugh at himself after completely missing fly ball

Tampa Bay Rays right fielder Steven Souza had a little bit of a spatial misjudgment while diving for a fly ball Friday nightat Target Field in Minnesota.

Earlier in the game, Souza had made a flying leap and impressively caughtKennys Vargas' line drive in the second inning.

Perhaps Souza had anidea the same thing would happen when Vargas hit a drive into right center at the bottom of the seventh, because he made a dive to catch it.
