It counted as a run just like any safe slide into home would -- but in terms of style points, Jake Lamb received a 0 out of 10 on this one.
During Thursday's matinee matchup at the San Francisco Giants, the Arizona Diamondbacks third baseman scored off a base hit from Paul Goldschmidt to give the D-backs a 2-0 lead in the third inning.
But Lamb is certainly happy to know that this less-than-graceful slide won't show up in the box score.

Fortunately, Lamb was able to make light of it after the game.
Sliding practice tomorrow....??

And of course, it helps that, despite his failed slide, the D-backs went on to complete their first ever four-game road sweep in San Francisco.
