With the Cubs down 4-2 in the 8th inning, Julio Borbon of Chicago realized that a walk is just as good as a hit. So, in an attempt to get more runners on base and stage a possible comeback, Borbon tried pulling off his best Oscar-worthy performance for getting hit by a pitch on the foot. Unfortunately, the dramatic display didn't work and he grounded out later in the at-bat. 

Leave the flops and dives for the professionals.
