With two outs in the top of the fifth in today’s game between the last-place Orioles and the Yankees, Baltimore catcher Caleb Joseph tried to score from first base on a double, but he was out by a mile. As Yankees catcher Austin Romine squared up in front of the plate to make the tag, Joseph went to slide, but then pulled up short and ended up flopping on Romine who then flopped on him in what looked like some sort of amateur slapstick comedy routine.


Yankees broadcaster Michael Kay said it looked like a “very awkward high school dance,” which makes me wonder how Kay’s high school dances went.
