MILWAUKEE (AP) - Rockies rookie catcher Wilin Rosario swung through a pitch and stayed in the batter’s box even though he had struck out in a humorous sequence against the Milwaukee Brewers.

Rosario took a big cut at a breaking ball by starter Zack Greinke and didn’t leave the box in the second inning of Tuesday night’s game.

Greinke stepped off the mound and held up three fingers, confirming with plate umpire Tim McClellan that Rosario had indeed struck out.

Rosario didn’t appear to say anything to McClellan, but slowly walked out of the box and back to the dugout, appearing unsure of what happened.

The 22-year-old Rosario spent the season at Double-A Tulsa before getting his first major league hit and home run in a loss to Arizona on Wednesday.
