Your browser does not support iframes. Add this one to the blooper reel. Barry Zito reached back to throw a curveball to Carlos Quentin in the bottom of the second between the Giants and Padres on Saturday, but the southpaw lost his grip. The ball went flying into the air and only went about halfway to home. Zito, who’s sporting a 4.42 ERA this season, didn’t seem at all amused. I’d say that pitch pretty well encapsulates his disappointing career with the Giants. For what it’s worth, Zito gave up 4 runs over 4 innings in the Giants’ 8-7 win.
