Tigers rookie Suarez takes a tumble on his way to home plate

Welcome to the blooper reel, Eugenio Suarez.
Suarez, a 22-year-old Detroit Tigers shortstop, has impressed at the plate since earning his first major league call-up last month, but his baserunning led to a rather unfortunate blunder Sunday night.
With the Tigers trailing the Tampa Bay Rays by five runs in the seventh inning, the young infielder took off from first base on Austin Jackson's two-out double into the left field corner.
Suarez's banana-peel slip ended up having little bearing on the outcome, though, as the Rays rocked the Tigers' pitching for 19 hits en route to a 7-3 win.
