This is something you don't see every day: A pitch that sails a little too high, then hits three different people before it hits the ground.
That's what Tampa Bay Rays pitcher Erasmo Ramirez managed to pull off Monday night. His 91-mph pitch glanced off the hand of Washington Nationals batter Yunel Escober, then kept going and hits Rays catcher René Rivera in the helmet.
The ball then ricocheted off Rivera's helmet and into the faceguard of Jim Reynolds, the home plate umpire.
Everyone looked a little rattled, but Escobar definitely got the brunt of the damage. Rivera and Reynolds can thank him for taking some of the heat off that pitch.
