Lots of pitchers battle control problems from time to time, but the Washington Nationals Henry Rodriguez took it to a new level, nearly hitting himself with his own wild pitch.

How is that possible, you ask? See animated GIF replay below!

Henry Rodriguez Wild Pitch

In his slight defense ... we have never seen anything like that.

The reliever only lasted a third of an inning and clearly was off his game, walking three batters and giving up a run in the Nats' 5-2 loss to the Reds Sunday.

When you nearly bean yourself, never a good sign.
