Travis d’Arnaud falls to the ground after being hit by a 55mph pitch


When a positional player comes into play on a blowout, there are often fun outcomes that ensue.

Such was the case in the Braves’ 16-4 win over the Nationals on Tuesday night in Atlanta.

Travis d’Arnaud has a smile on his face after falling to the ground jokingly after being hit by a 55 mph pitch by Dee Strange-Gordon, normally a second baseman, in the blowout 16- 4 of the Braves on the Nationals on Monday.

Nationals’ Dee Strange-Gordon, normally a second baseman, was called to throw cleanup duty and hit catcher Travis D’arnaud with a 55 mph pitch. When the former Met was hit, he playfully fell to the ground.

Gordon – who came into the game in the eighth inning – allowed three earned runs, including a solo homer to Ozzie Albies, in his only working inning.

The benign dip was a stark contrast to the Mets-Nationals series in which several members of the Amazin were hit by throws at much faster speeds and led to the clearing of the benches.
