That half-million-dollar bonus stayed one out away. He still earned a nice prize: the major league record for strikeout-to-walk ratio. Hughes struck out five without a walk over eight innings, and the Twins beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 2-1 on Wednesday afternoon.

When it comes to intimidating opponents, there are several effective methods a major league baseball player could use. There’s the thousand-yard stare, the extra-sharp cleats — and those dreaded tobacco loogies. But nothing is more unsettling to an opponent then a well-formed and hypnotic bubble-gum bubble.
