Ambidextrous relief pitcher Pat Venditte has been in Major League Baseball for about a year. He’s bounced back and forth between the show and the minors, and Venditte made his Mariners debut this evening. After starter Hisashi Iwakuma was chased after three innings, Venditte stepped in and pitched three innings of one-hit ball. Adrian Beltre also clowned him by stepping into the box with his helmet on backwards.
Beltre’s double was the only hit Venditte gave up, so he clearly got in his head.
