The Toronto Blue Jays' Chris Coghlan stunned baseball fans Tuesday night with one of the most unique, acrobatic "slides" ever seen.

During the 7th inning of the Blue Jays' 6-5 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals, Coghlan turned what appeared to be a guaranteed out into a Blue Jays run by soaring and somersaulting over the head of Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina.

With the score tied at 2-2 in the 7th, Blue Jays outfielder Kevin Pillar hit a ball to the right-field corner.

Coghlan, who entered the game as a pinch-hitter and got on base with a walk, sped around the bases and was waved home by third-base coach Luis Rivera.

It initially appeared to be an ill-advised decision, as Cardinals right fielder Stephen Piscotty made a great throw and Molina was in perfect position at home plate.

Coghlan, however, vaulted over Molina like a superhero, rotating in midair, before his hands found the plate.

"I was coming around third, and I looked to my left to see where the ball was," Coghlan told MLB.com. "I saw it was going to beat me, and then, probably the last step or two, I saw Yadi go down. Your first thought is, 'OK, I'm going to run him over because he's right over the plate.' Then I was thinking, since he was down, 'Why don't you jump?' I just jumped, and the rest is history."

Twitter immediately exploded in the moments following the stunning dive/slide.
