ANAHEIM -- Angels reliever Ryan Brasier had a twist in his pregame routine on Friday night.

Prior to joining his fellow relievers in the bullpen, Brasier milked a cow as part of "Dairy Night" -- one of the odder pregame ceremonies to take place at Angel Stadium.

"Never milked a cow," Brasier said. "I don't even know if I've ever touched a cow. It really wasn't that bad, not as hard as I thought it'd be. It felt like the nipple on a baby bottle. I was a little nervous to begin with."

The 25-year old rookie was selected for the unique task because of his youth. Although Brasier had never experienced anything similar to milking a cow and was a bit unsure of how to do it, Brasier is a competitor and enjoyed winning the race against White Sox reliever Nate Jones.

"When I first got out there, it was more learning how to do it, but obviously you want to win," Brasier said.
