Tampa Bay Rays center-fielder Kevin Kiermaier decides to fly like superman during his team’s game against the Baltimore Orioles Monday.

By Robby Sabo

During the first batter of the game between the Tampa Bay Rays and the Baltimore Orioles on Monday we had a primetime matchup.

It was Rays starter Chris Archer pitted up against Orioles lead-off hitter Manny Machado. Both guys were named to the 2015 MLB All-Star team, and both are burgeoning superstars in baseball.

Somebody had to come out on top, right?

Well, Machado in essence did. He smacked an opposite field shot to right-center. It was good enough for a home run 99 percent of the time. Unfortunately for Machado, Rays center-fielder Kevin Kiermaier was roaming the outfield.

Watch the video above to check out how high Kiermaier gets in the air to absolutely rob Machado of a dinger.
