The Los Angeles Angels played a well-pitched and solid game as they defeated the Washington Nationals by a final score of 4-1 on Monday night. If you did not have that context, you might believe that the pitch found below would be a bad omen for the Angels and their chances with Garrett Richards on the mound.
This could have been far more entertaining had there been runners on base, but the visual is fun nonetheless. As for Richards, he pitched a very nice game for the Angels, going six innings and allowing only one run. It might not surprise the reader, however, to learn after seeing that pitch that he did issue four walks en route to an otherwise quality start.
