SportsPotato: Cardinals Center Fielder Peter Bourjos KO’s Teammate With Vicious Sliding Knee

With all the vicious knockouts taking place at Fight Night 75 and Bellator 143 over the weekend, you’d think it would be damn near impossible for any non-combat sport to top MMA in terms of pure violence. But then, the work week rolls in and professional baseball somehow takes the cake.

In the 7th inning of last night’s Cardinals-Pirates game, Pittsburgh third baseman Josh Harrison drilled a shot to center field, drawing in both center fielder Peter Bourjos and left fielder Stephen Piscotty in at break neck speed in an attempt to field the ball. Piscotty opted for a head first dive to make the play, while Bourjos went with a knee-first slide. The resulting collision was undeniably one of the most horrific knockouts in professional baseball history.

SportsPotato: Watch (Or Don’t Watch) This BRUTAL, Achilles-Rupturing Heel Hook From a Welsh Rugby Match

The last time we checked in with…the entire sport of rugby, we saw Wigan Warriors prop Ben Flower savagely KO Lance Hohaia of St Helens RLFC with what BG dubbed “one of the most disgusting fouls I’ve ever seen in a non-combat sport.” And today, it appears that that landmark cheap shot has been surpassed.

SportsPotato: Ben Flower Scores Savage KO Via Punches During Rugby League Match, Is Ejected

I don’t pretend to understand the rules of rugby league, but I do know this — you are generally not allowed to punch an unconscious opponent in the face. This weekend at the 2014 Super League Grand Final, a hulking Wigan Warriors prop named Ben Flower got his dumb ass ejected in the second minute of the game when he forgot which sport he was playing, knocked out Lance Hohaia of St Helens RLFC with a straight right, then landed another devastating blow from above because Steve Mazzagatti hadn’t jumped in yet. (Skip to 0:43 for the replay.) It’s honestly one of the most disgusting fouls I’ve ever seen in a non-combat-sport, and fortunately, Flower’s team lost the game 14-6.

SportsPotato: Serge Ibaka Lands Clean Right Hook to Blake Griffin’s Dick/Balls Area [VIDEO]

The 2014 NBA playoffs have been rather chippy, to say the least. During game 4 of the Los Angeles Clippers vs. Oklahoma City Thunder series yesterday, Thunder power-forward Serge Ibaka responded to a shove from Blake Griffin by switching to southpaw stance and landing a lead right hook directly to Griffin’s crotch. Griffin limped off downcourt following the punch, very much like a man who had just had his nuts racked.

Keep in mind that this happened in the very beginning of the game, when the score was still tied at zero. Indeed, a message had been sent early, though Ibaka later said the low blow was an accident. The Clippers went on to beat the Thunder by a score of 101-99, tying their series at 2-2.

SportsPotato: Josh McRoberts TKO’s LeBron James via Flying Elbow

Near the end of last night’s NBA playoff game between the Miami Heat and the Charlotte Bobcats, Josh McRoberts hit LeBron James with a beautiful jumping elbow, sending James crashing to the court in apparent agony. In the NBA, that’s worthy of a flagrant foul. In the UFC, McRoberts would be pocketing $50,000 for Performance of the Night. The Heat hung on to victory, and are up 2-0 in their series against Charlotte.
