When the Washington Nationals called on Wizards guard John Wall to throw out the ceremonial first pitch of yesterday's interleague game against the Baltimore Orioles, it was a decent nod to everybody within the same NBA market. When Wall threw the ball, though, it was an affront to physics and the properties of physics.

Of course, Colin Cowherd will probably just point to a perceived paucity of black pitchers since the J.R. Richard era as evidence of something coded.

The Nationals gave up 18 hits but won their seventh consecutive game 8-4.
