Reds' Minor League Pitcher Hits Batter, Catcher and Umpire All on Same Pitch

Now this is impressive.

Curtis Partch, a pitcher for the Louisville Bats (the Triple-A affiliates of the Cincinnati Reds), managed to hit the batter, the catcher and the home plate umpire all on one pitch Monday night.

Partch has a high-90s fastball, so there's a good chance this one stung a little bit. Unfortunately for catcher Tucker Barnhart and umpire David Soucy, the batter was the only one who got to take a base on the play.

The unusual play led to this reaction from the Bats:

The old saying about baseball really is true: You truly never know what you will see when you go to the ballpark on any given night.
