Josh Donaldson Curses at Angels Pitching Coach, Makes Obscene Gesture

Whether you're a fan of huge slugfests or pitcher's duels, any baseball fan can appreciate a hurler chasing a perfect game or no-hitter. Normally, we don't start getting push notifications on our phones about these efforts until the fifth or sixth inning, but people were on high alert with Andrew Heaney on the mound for the Los Angeles Angels.

Like, real high alert.

After pitching well in his first start against the Houston Astros on June 24, Heaney tried doing more of the same Tuesday night in Anaheim against the New York Yankees. His performance got off to a good start, retiring outfielder Brett Gardner on a couple pitches. However, we can blame the TV broadcast for jinxing him from etching his name in the history books, and not just for how many times he got traded over the offseason (via Twitter):

That's a little premature, if I do say so myself. There's nothing wrong with feeling confident, though.

While this is a prime example of someone spoiling a potential no-hitter, Heaney did proceed to retire the side in order by inducing a line out from Chris Young, followed by striking out Alex Rodriguez. However, Mark Teixeira rained on the parade by leading off the second inning with a solo home run.

That could've derailed the young righty after coming so close to a no-no and getting everyone some free Dominos, but he stayed focused like any solid professional would. He only allowed that one run on two hits, two walks and seven strikeouts in seven innings of work for his first career win in the big leagues, and a cool 17 FanDuel points for DFSers who took a chance on him.

Let this be a lesson to whoever put that graphic up in the top of the first inning — if you actually want to see a no-hitter or perfect game, don't ever do that again. If you're just trying to be funny like the San Diego Padres from earlier this season, then keep going because it's hilarious.
