Manny Machado had to laugh at himself after he awkwardly tumbled to the ground early in the Orioles 3-2 loss to the Yankees at Yankee Stadium on Tuesday.
When Orioles third baseman Jonathan Schoop took the relay throw from the outfield and considered going home with the ball, Machado appeared as if he was looking for a cutoff from Schoop, who was only a few feet from him.
And as Schoop faked a mighty throw home, Machado decided it was better to just get out of the way of the ball by falling right on his can.
Problem was ... there was no throw.
Welp. See you next Fall. pic.twitter.com/Ndq2eotQ26— MLB GIFS (@MLBGIFs) July 22, 2015
