Ambidextrous, indeed.

Hit on his pitching arm by a line drive, Velasquez made a dazzling throw with his left hand, and Philadelphia overcame an early injury to its starting pitcher to beat Alex Cappa Jersey the Washington Nationals Mike Cammalleri Jersey 3-2 on Saturday.

It is well-known he is one of our best all-around athletes, Phillies manager Gabe Kapler said. You just would never predict that.

Velasquez knew he could throw left-handed. He just didn’t know if he could make an accurate toss.

I actually surprised myself throwing a strike right there, he said.

After completing the play, Velasquez dropped to the ground, writhing in pain and clutching his right arm. He was pulled from the game with a bruise, having allowed one run and three hits.

Bradham was in a group of customers at the hotel and began to complain to a hotel worker about the speed of service. The incident escalated, according to the police report, when the defendant, without provocation, struck the victim in the nose with a closed fist, causing the victim to fall to the ground. The victim suffered a broken nose, contusions and a cut lip.

Bradham accepted a deferred prosecution program last July, and the case was closed in January.

We have been in contact with Nigel and the NFL regarding his suspension. We respect the league’s decision on this matter and we are disappointed that Nigel put himself in this position, the Eagles said in a statement. Nigel has taken responsibility and expressed to us through his words and actions that he has learned from his mistake. We will continue to be supportive of him throughout this process.
