(CBS) Cubs outfielder Julio Borbon isn’t winning an Academy Award any time soon.

During the ninth inning of today’s Cubs-Padres game, Borbon saw a pitch bounce two feet away from him and proceeded to dance around, acting as if he was hit in the foot by the errant pitch.

It wasn’t even close.

Fortunately for everyone involved, the home plate umpire knew exactly what was going on and ruled the pitch a ball.
