Brandon Phillips Forces Jonathan Villar into a 'Butt Slide'

Tristan ThornburghSocial Media StaffSeptember 18, 2013

In the bottom of the first inning against Houston, Cincinnati Reds second baseman Brandon Phillips pulled a cruel, cruel trick on Astros shortstop Jonathan Villar when he forced Villar to slide directly into his butt while he protected second base.

As if his head placement wasn't embarrassing enough, Villar was called out on the play.

Hat tip to SB Nation for the GIF.
