Texas Rangers catcher A.J. Pierzynski had a rough sequence during the second inning of Saturday's game against the Seattle Mariners when he fell down the dugout steps after being thrown out at home plate.

Pierzynski tried to score from third on a grounder to short, but Mariners shortstop Brendan Ryan made a perfect throw home to catcher Kelly Shoppach, who had home plate blocked to prevent Pierzynski from scoring on the fielder's choice.
Pierzynksi expressed his frustration as he reached the dugout by throwing his helmet, but then, to add insult to injury, he slipped and fell down the remaining dugout steps, which further bruised his ego.
Fortunately, Pierzynksi was not physically hurt, and stayed in the game for the remainder of the Rangers 5-2 victory.
