Astros pitcher Collin McHugh is a lucky dude.

After one of his pitches was thrown, the batter swings, cracks a line drive right at McHugh's head. You can only imagine how fast that ball was coming. Thankfully, his reflexes kicked in and he pulls a Neo from The Matrix, and bends backward to avoid getting smoked in the face!

I'm pretty sure he smelled the ball as it passed under his nose. Also, I'm pretty sure he took the red pill.
