Angels Pitcher Nick Adenhart Killed in Hit-and-Run

Nick_adenheart Sorry to end the day on a total bummer. Nick Adenhart, a rookie pitcher for the Los Angeles Angels, was killed in a hit-and-run car accident last night.

A minivan flew through a red light and hit the car Adenhart was in, smashing it into a light pole. The minivan driver fled the scene, but was later apprehended and charged with a felony. Adenhart and two others were killed while one more person remains in the hospital.

This is, of course, a senseless tragedy, but there are several factors that make it extra shitty: hours before the accident, Adenheart had a fantastic game, striking out 5 hitters over 6 scoreless innings; this was only his second Major League season and last night's game was only his fourth Major League start; he was 22.

Our thoughts are with Adenheart's friends and family and with his teammates.
