GIF: Chad Qualls celebrates inning-ending K, trips over own feet

By Matt Snyder | Baseball Writer

After allowing Mets center fielder Marlon Byrd to triple leading off the eighth inning in a tie game, Marlins reliever Chad Qualls was able to leave Byrd 90 feet away from home plate.

Understandably, he was excited. But maybe too excited ...

(Thanks to Paul Sporer for allowing us to use his excellent GIF)

Sniper!

"Chad Falls" is a bit obvious here, though there's no reason to argue with the obvious answer sometimes.

Finally, at least he didn't pull a Bill Gramatica and get hurt.
