Johnny Cueto tries to pull a Happy Gilmore, comes up empty

When Johnny Cueto toes the rubber, it can be a nightmare for big league hitters everywhere. When Cueto has a bat in his hand, not so much of a problem. But that doesn't stop him from taking a healthy hack at the baseball now and again.

Cueto took a running start at the ball -- much like Happy Gilmore hitting a golf ball -- on Wednesday night in an attempt to hit a breaking ball from Dodgers' lefty Rich Hill. The Giants' right-hander missed the ball but he was a big winner in the entertainment category.
