Falling over when trying to make a catch is bad for any baseball player, but doing it and handing your opponents a walk-off win must really sting.

That's what happened Friday when the Pittsburgh Pirates and Chicago Cubs met at Wrigley Field. They were tied at 10-10 and went into extra innings.

Up steps Matt Szczur in the 12th inning, who sends a routine popup to right field, only for the Pirates' Gregory Polanco to make a real hash of the catch, allowing Starlin Castro to cross home plate for the win.

Fortunately, the only thing Polanco hurt was his pride.

Watch his stumble in the video above.
