Rangers' Double Play Breaks Mike Scioscia's Spirit

Los Angeles Angels manager Mike Scioscia always looks like an anxious bloodhound, but his heart broke in half on TV after Texas Rangers pitcher Nick Martinez started a double play with a behind-the-back catch.

In the fifth inning, Martinez snagged Andrelton Simmons’s line drive and threw to first to get C.J. Cron out. The broadcast cut to Scioscia, who looked like he had just been told that a loved one had died.

That moment when he shook his head is when he remembered that Mike Trout has 10.0 WAR and the Angels are at the bottom of their division.
