Late in Sunday's Mariners-Blue Jays game, not-so-fleet afoot Mariners designated hitter Kendrys Morales ended up with an infield double.

How does such a thing happen? Well, Edwin Encarnacion wants to show you:

Mark DeRosa, who can be seen in the above GIF standing idly by, expressed remorse afterward.

"I feel bad because it's probably my ball," said DeRosa, via the Associated Press. "It was a high sky. I kind of went for it and was waiting for someone to call it. He called it and the next thing I know he's on the ground. When you win the game 10-2, you can laugh those things off."

Some of the Jays did laugh about it after the big victory.

“I reminded him that there was a mound in the middle of the diamond,” said Jose Bautista jokingly (TorontoSun.com).

After clubbing 42 homers last season, Encarnacion is tied for the AL lead with nine this season. The batter's box is his friend. The mound? Not so much.
