Rock and roll can happen to anyone, anytime. Just ask Arizona Diamondbacks pitcher J.J. Putz.

Putz was the victim of a PA system mix-up that clearly spooked him and caused him to spike his ball to the ground in the ninth inning. Motley Crue's "Kickstart My Heart" started in the middle of Putz's windup, and the sound (which could easily be mistaken for a cow moo) came blaring full blast throughout Chase Field.

Here's another angle of the spike:

As if that wasn't bad enough, the D-backs lost 4-1 to the Mets in the outing. Now you kids turn that darn music down.

Hat tip to Yahoo! Sports for the find.
