Los Angeles Angel's pitcher Nick Adenhart killed by drunk driver

The rookie started last night, then was among three people in a Mitsubishi who died when a red-light runner hit the car in Fullerton.

Adenhart, who was 22, threw six shutout innings in a no-decision last night at Anaheim. It was his fourth lifetime start and he had a record of 1-0.

Los Angeles Angels pitcher Nick Adenhart and two others were killed by a suspected drunk driver Thursday, a shocking end to the life of a rookie who had overcome major elbow surgery to realize his big league dreams.

The accident in neighboring Fullerton occurred hours after the 22-year-old pitcher made his season debut with his father in the stands, throwing six scoreless innings against the Oakland Athletics. The Angels ultimately lost the game, 6-4.
