Pitcher battled back from near death: Dusty Baker used fisherman's terminology to describe left-hander Adam Pettyjohns slashing and sliding fastball. He waved his hand like a trout captured in a net. "Thats what he throws," Baker said. "In and out, cutting and tailing and sinking. Nothing straight." It took seven years of swimming upstream for Pettyjohn to complete an unlikely return to the major leagues. He pitched one scoreless inning Sunday for the Cincinnati Reds, his first appearance since 2001. His story is hard to believe, but this is no fisherman's tale.
