Prince Fielder belly flops his way to third

The Detroit Tigers took a 2-1 lead over the Boston Red Sox in the top of the fifth, but had a chance to score more runs. Brandon Workman was facing Jhonny Peralta with runners on the corners and nobody out when Peralta hit a groundball to Dustin Pedroia.

Pedroia tagged the runner heading to second base, then fired the ball home. Prince Fielder, who had been on third base, was caught in a rundown between bases.

Fielder attempted to make it back to third, but fell just short of the bag.

Not much of a slide from Fielder, more of a belly flop.
