Prince Fielder added an insurance run with a solo home run in the bottom of the fourth inning of Thursday’s game against the Astros, boosting the Rangers’ lead to 4-2. It was an absolute rocket down the right field line off of Collin McHugh.

The ball was headed towards a fan and it happened to hit her cell phone. The FOX Sports Southwest broadcast caught up with her as she explained what happened.

As a bonus, the broadcast noticed that a guy snagged the ball after it was deflected, so they retrieved the ball from him and gave it back to the girl.
