At the tail end of a very solid evening for Yu Darvish (finally!), he was emptying the tank in the 6th inning with the fastball. 96 mph. Then 98 mph. Then 99 mph!
And then, on his second straight 99 mph fastball, he did something you will never see again:

That is a running fastball hitting Lewis Brinson in the junk, and then bouncing off to hit the umpire in the throat. Dickochet.
Hopefully Brinson is, uh, gonna be OK in the family way long-term. I can tell you, vasectomy complications are no picnic.
