Chris Tillman threw a pitch about three feet outside and Adrian Beltre needed a timeout
Sometimes, like when you're at a family reunion and your Uncle Frank keeps making uncomfortable jokes in front of your 101-year-old grandmother, everybody just needs to take a timeout. Regather. Recuperate. Especially Uncle Frank.
That's kind of what happened during the Orioles-Rangers game on Thursday. A pitch got very much away from O's starter Chris Tillman, as pitches are wont to do, and Adrian Beltre figured everyone just needed a quick timeout.
Unfortunately for Texas, Beltre flied out two pitches later. And fortunately for Tillman, the ball didn't seek vengeance
