Nixon Gives Jays the Slip

Boston, MA 05/04/2006: About the only thing that didn't go right for the Red Sox in the bottom of the first inning. Trot Nixon was rounding third, headed for the plate to score on Jason Varitek's double, but as he went around, third base coach DeMarlo Hale gave him the stop sign, and when he tried to put on the brakes quickly, he slipped and unceremoniously ended up on his back right in front of the Blue Jays' dugout. He did get back up in time to safely get back to third, and he eventually did score as part of a five run opening frame for Boston.
