There’s bad headlines. Some of them have to do with editors not being on the ball. Others simply lack common sense.

We’re going to go with a combination of the two at a local Bay Area news station following the Atlanta Braves’ blowout 13-1 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals in Game 5 of the NLDS on Wednesday.

Check out KTVU with the most unfortunate of headlines in covering the story.

Double facepalm, indeed.
