Bounce me, maybe: Carly Rae Jepsen had a little trouble throwing out the first pitch

“Call Me Maybe” singer Carly Rae Jepsen threw out the ceremonial first pitch at yesterday’s Astros-Rays game and it was really, really bad:

The weird thing is that Jepsen previously threw out the first pitch at an Orioles game two months ago and was actually pretty impressive. Maybe, like Alfredo Aceves, she’s pitching hurt.

Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman had to exit Wednesday night’s game against the Phillies after he was hit on the left wrist by a Hoby Milner fastball in the bottom of the eighth inning. Charlie Culberson pinch-ran for him and stayed in the game to play first base.

You may recall that Freeman’s left wrist is the one that was fractured by an Aaron Loup pitch last year. Understandably, there’s some concern here. The Braves should provide an update later tonight or on Thursday.

Freeman went 1-for-3 in Wednesday’s game before exiting. On the season, he’s batting .288/.468/.492 with two home runs, 12 RBI, and 12 runs scored in 79 plate appearances.
