Yu Darvish Throws An Eephus Pitch, And Torii Hunter's Brain Breaks

In today's day game between the Rangers and Tigers, Yu Darvish got creative with an 0-2 count and two outs against Torii Hunter. The Rangers pitcher didn't get strike three, but he caused Torii Hunter to get a "Program Not Responding" message in his head.


Darvish's 55-mph eephus came at the perfect time. With a seven-run lead and no one on base, the stakes were low. Even though the pitch didn't cause a punchout, it still created a fun baseball moment with Hunter not knowing what to do at all when faced with such a slow pitch.

For the record, Hunter ended up striking out swinging in the at-bat.
