Brewers’ Adrian Houser jokes about vomiting on mound while pitching

Milwaukee Brewers relief pitcher Adrian Houser had one of the worst experiences one could probably have on Sunday, but he kept his sense of humor about it.

Houser vomited twice on the mound while pitching the eighth inning of Milwaukee’s game against the Philadelphia Phillies, which is enough to embarrass anyone. After the game, though, Houser wasn’t letting it get him down. In fact, he compared himself to Willie Beeman of Any Given Sunday fame when assessing the situation in the clubhouse.

One good thing that came out of the situation? Houser’s insistence on gutting it out and finishing the inning impressed his teammates.

You have to credit Houser. He kept it together, got through the inning, and laughed it off afterward.

Watch: Brewers reliever throws up twice while pitching

Milwaukee Brewers reliever Adrian Houser had a very rough afternoon on the mound Sunday, and not in the sense that a pitcher usually would.

Houser, who was just recalled to the majors Sunday morning, was brought into the game against the Philadelphia Phillies in the 8th inning. After throwing his warmup pitches, Houser called a trainer out and immediately vomited behind the mound.

Unimpressed, the grounds crew simply watered down the grass, and Houser remained in the game.

Whatever was afflicting Houser wasn’t finished with him. After facing two batters, Houser vomited again, this time on the mound itself.

Video of the first bout of illness is here, though beware if you’re squeamish.

Remarkably, Houser managed to finish the inning, giving up two hits and a run.

It’s not the first time we’ve seen someone vomit on the mound, but this came after the outing was concluded. Seeing a pitcher get sick twice and pitch through it is certainly rather unprecedented.
