Angels' promising pitcher, Nick Adenhart, 22, killed in car crash

Nick Adenhart, 22, of the Los Angeles Angels was killed early Thursday morning in a tragic, hit-and-run car accident just hours after pitching. A minivan reportedly ran a red light, striking the sports car that Adenhart was driving, causing the car to hit a telephone pole. All three passengers in the sports car were killed.

Adenhart was one of the Angels' top pitching prospects. Although he struggled last year, both in the majors and the minors, he was a very promising, young player. In his first and last game this year Adenhart went 6 innings with no earned runs. He gave up 7 hits, struck out 5, and walked 3.

Condolences to the Adenhart and Angels families.
