In the seventh inning of Friday's series opener, won 8-4 by the Blue Jays, Royals shortstop Alcides Escobar hit a foul fly ball down the right-field line. The ballboy came out of his seat, camped under the ball far from the railing and missed making the catch with Davis by his side.
"All I know is, I was trying to make the play and couldn't," Davis said.
Interference wasn't called and Escobar wound up grounding out.
