Not only did Boston Red Sox outfielder Jarren Duran lose track of a fly ball Friday while playing center field at Fenway Park, but his blunder resulted in an inside-the-park grand slam for Raimel Tapia of the Toronto Blue Jays.

"It's the most helpless feeling you could feel," Duran said, according to The Boston Globe's Julian McWilliams. "Until you guys catch a ball in the twilight, let me know."

The incident took place in the third inning of an eventual 28-5 blowout.

Duran didn't hustle after the ball went over his head, something manager Alex Cora addressed after the game.

"That's conversations between players, and sometimes that voice is a lot louder than the manager in those situations," Cora said.

"It's a hard feeling. There's nothing you can do. It's stuff we address. We try to make him better, help him out. He's still a kid, learning the position. I bet, at that point, he didn't even know what to do."

Duran has appeared in 52 games in center field during his big-league career. The Red Sox recalled the 25-year-old from the minors in mid-June after they placed Christian Arroyo on the injured list with a strained groin.

Boston is currently without Arroyo and Enrique Hernandez, who's also on the IL with a strained hip flexor.
