The losing pitcher in Monday's Brewers-Rockies extra-inning game was lesser-known relief pitcher Adam Ottavino of the Rockies. But there's a distinction when it comes to Ottavino -- his jersey number.

Ottavino took the hill sporting No. 0 on his back, making him the first pitcher in Major League Baseball history to sport zero in a game.
