Brent Suter accidentally does reverse somersault on mound vs Cubs

Milwaukee Brewers pitcher Brent Suter pulled off an impressive reverse somersault on the mound by accident during Saturday night's game against Chicago.

It happened in the third inning of a scoreless game with two outs and no men on base.  Suter was in the middle of his windup on the 1-0 pitch when he seemed to catch his plant foot in the dirt, throwing him off balance.  As he fell backward, Suter was able to position himself to roll backwards and pop right back up on his feet, as if he meant to do it.
  Suter's teammates got a good laugh out of it, and the Brewers in the dugout gave him a hand. 

Suter shook it off well as he struck out Cubs batter Ian Happ to end the inning. It would be his last batter of the game as Suter finished with 3 scoreless innings, striking out six and giving up only one hit.
