Adrian Beltre throws glove at ball, has had just about enough of Carlos Gonzalez

Robert Hanashiro-USA TODAY Sports

If you have no chance of catching a ball, might as well chuck your glove (although you'd better not actually hit the ball).

Sometimes, nothing goes your way, and that's how things went for the Rangers Tuesday night against the Rockies.

Adrian Beltre was lined up right for Carlos Gonzalez, well off the third-base line, but CarGo sliced the ball perfectly down the line for an easy RBI. Beltre responded as any frustrated athlete or seven-year-old would do, and chucked his glove as hard as he could:

On the one hand, Beltre is lucky he didn't make contact, because hitting a ball with a thrown glove is an automatic triple and would've scored the runner from first -- per Rule 7.05 (c):

Three bases, if a fielder deliberately throws his glove at and touches a fair ball. The ball is in play and the batter may advance to home base at his peril.

On the other, Gonzalez is currently 5-5 and the Rockies are up 12-1, so it didn't really matter, huh?

(Less productive than Jose Abreu throwing his glove (with ball) to the pitcher for an out, certainly.)
