You won't find this slide in any instructional videos, unless they include a "how not to" section.

On the bright side, Ramirez probably would have been safe -- if he didn't have to go back to first because of a foul ball off the bat of teammate Lonnie Chisenhall.

Adding insult to injury, the Royals used a seven-run eighth inning to beat the Indians, 7-3.
