Loud noise causes J.J. Putz to throw into ground (VIDEO)

A loud noise from the Chase Field speakers caused Diamondbacks hurler J.J. Putz to throw into the ground while delivering a pitch to Justin Turner Saturday night.

In the ninth-inning of the Mets-D'Backs game, the putzes in the audio booth inadvertently played what sounded like the cranked-up opening riffs of Eddie Van Halen's guitar classic "Eruption" throughout the stadium startling Putz who was in the middle of his windup on the mound.

The sound techies took blame for the ear-shattering mishap and umpires ruled the muffed throw a no pitch.
