A-Rod doubles, belly-flops into second base and strikes a pose

A-Rod stepped to the plate during Thursday's fourth inning in New York and drove a Jake Peavy fastball to right-center field. The ball dropped between Red Sox outfielders Jacoby Ellsbury and Shane Victorino for what would ordinarily be an easy single.

But Rodriguez dug deep and tried to stretch the hit into a double. He made it to second, but only after executing this belly-flop-esque slide -- complete with a model pose at the end.
