Despite it being a lost season for the Kansas City Royals, they brought home an impressive win on Tuesday night against a playoff contender in the Oakland Athletics. However, the entire night wasn't pretty for the Royals.

During his relief appearance, Royals pitcher Jake Brentz had a little trouble getting the ball over the plate, and that's putting it lightly. Brentz threw one of the worst pitches we've ever seen. It was so bad, he almost hit himself with it.

I know they have been checking pitchers after every inning for sticky stuff these days, but after Brentz was out there looking like Spiderman, they might have to go and check mid-frame.
