Watch as Mariners rookie shortstop Chris Taylor making a diving stop before throwing out Tigers designated hitter Victor Martinez from the outfield grass. Oh, and we also get a bonus collision between Martinez and Logan Morrison at first base. Fortunately nobody got hurt here, so this video is just a lot of fun to watch.

Called up last month amid the struggles of Brad Miler, Taylor has seized his opportunity at the starting shortstop job by hitting .385 (20-for-52) with five doubles and four RBI over his first 18 games in the majors.
