Scoring off Tampa Bay Rays ace David Price is no easy task, so when you get the opportunity to cross the plate against him, you better take advantage of it.

On ESPN's Sunday Night Baseball, the turf monster prevented Detroit Tigers rookie Eugenio Suarez from scoring from first on a double by Austin Jackson in the seventh inning:

Unfortunately for Suarez, this doesn't fall into the category of "rookie mistake." It's just an embarrassing moment for the first-year shortstop.

Tampa Bay went on to win 7-3, so Suarez's blooper didn't have much of an effect on the outcome of the game.
