Matt Joyce hit a hole-in-one at Tropicana Field on Thursday.

The Rays designated hitter smacked an extraordinary foul ball during practice that bounced off the batting cage and back into the pitching machine’s loading slot.

Joyce had turned his back and didn’t even see what happened before the machine fired the ball back again as a perfect strike.

The Rays went on to defeat the Houston Astros 5-0 later that night. Joyce went 1-for-4 in the game.
