Minor league pitcher records one-pitch strikeout
Thursday night, in a Texas League game between the Double-A Corpus Christi Hooks and Midland Rockhounds, pitcher Nick Tropeano recorded a one-pitch strikeout. Yes, that's right, a one-pitch strikeout.
Tonight I might have made history with a "One Pitch Strikeout". I'll take it haha!!!— Nick Tropeano (@PaPaTropeano) August 2, 2013
According to the box score, here's what happened: Tropeano's first pitch to Vinnie Catricala was a called strike. Pitches two and three were both ruled automatic strikes.
.@JustinWhiteTCU Batter argued strike one call, and when he refused to get back in the box ump called strike two. Repeat for strike three.— Chris Blake (@ChrisCBlake) August 2, 2013
You've gotta love baseball.
If we don't refer to @PaPaTropeano as "One-Pitch Strikeout" then we're all doing it wrong.— Astros County (@AstrosCounty) August 2, 2013
