Wow. A few hours after pitching a great game, Angels pitching prospect Nick Adenhart passed away in a car accident.

The culprit was caught, but this is still a heartbreaking story. An already ailing pitching staff for the Angels now loses a young and promising talent.

The kid was just 22.

Adenhart had a rough start to his 2008 season as a rookie. In three career starts, he was 1-0 with a 9 ERA, with only 4 strikeouts and 13 walks, and a WHIP of 2.58.

Batters were hitting .360 against him.

He did start out this year well though. Facing Oakland on the night of the accident, he pitched six innings, giving up seven hits with just three walks and five strikeouts, while giving up no runs.

Condolences go out to his family. Losing someone so young always hurts, and he will be remembered.
