There might not be a harder pill to swallow in baseball than losing a 0-0 game in the bottom of the 9th inning on a balk.

Unfortunately for Texas Rangers pitcher Keone Kela, that was the exact case in this June 2015 baseball game between the Rangers and the Los Angeles Dodgers in LA.

Keone's confused face of disbelief really says it all, as the Rangers' catcher has already flipped up face mask in frustration and started his long walk back to the Texas dugout.

But, hey, at the end of the day, a win is a win and it goes the W column the same as a walk-off home run or a 30-0 result would.
