Marlins Pitcher Chad Qualls Wipes Out While Attempting Post-Strikeout Fist Pump (GIF)

Even when the Marlins make a quality play, something goes wrong.

Reliever Chad Qualls became the latest victim of that fact Tuesday night, when he botched the execution of his celebratory fist pump and ended up taking a tumble on the infield grass.

Qualls escaped his one inning of relief unscathed — on the stat sheet, at least — but the Marlins were not so lucky. The Mets touched the Marlins for a pair of runs in the top of the 10th inning en route to a 4-2 win.

Check out Qualls’ tumble in GIF form below.
