The Strike Zone is dedicated to bringing you the latest and greatest footage of random Major League Baseball pitchers inexplicably falling down, so we consider it our duty to present you with this video of the Angels' C.J. Wilson approaching the mound before the bottom of the second inning against the Rays Tuesday night.

Note also the location of his first pitch of that inning. Wilson got Sean Rodriguez to fly out on the next pitch, but then gave up a run on three straight hits before getting out of the inning. He ultimately gave up three runs in five innings and left with a no-decision. In the interest of fairness, I should also point out that Wilson is 9-1 with a 2.78 ERA and just three home runs allowed over his last 14 starts.
