But his bare-chested slide into home was nothing compared to the pain he felt when home-plate umpire Jeff Kellogg chased him down from behind, wrapped him with both arms and took him to the warning track with an open-field tackle.

Kellogg declined comment through club officials.
Orioles spokeswoman Monica Barlow said Friday's incident was the fourth known incident this season where a spectator ran on the field.
