J.P. Howell Grabs Ball Between Legs, Swears
The Dodgers were lifeless in Game 3 of their ALDS series with the Cardinals, except for relief pitcher J.P. "Ezekiel" Howell:
How the hell did he field that ball between his legs with his back to the batter? But he wasn't done after that. He then had the Jedi presence of mind to throw the ball home for a force out (the bases were loaded), to start a 1-2-3 double play (just typing that scoring sequence makes the blood in my body flow southward). So what was his reaction?
Pssst: J.P., you're down by 2 runs and are about to go down 2-1 in a best of 3 series. But at least you're pleased about your fielding. TEAM!
