TUCSON — A pitch by Randy Johnson hit and killed a dove flying in front of home plate.
The lethal pitch came during the seventh inning of the Arizona Diamondbacks' 10-5 victory against the San Francisco Giants on Saturday.
The bird flew over catcher Rod Barajas' head and landed a few feet from the plate amid a sea of feathers.
"I'm sitting there waiting for it, and I'm expecting to catch the thing, and all you see is an explosion," Barajas said. "It's crazy. There's still feathers down there."
