July 14 (UPI) -- Carly Rae Jepsen might be responsible for the catchiest, most ubiquitous pop song in recent memory, but her pitching skills need a little work.

The diminutive "Call Me Maybe" singer threw out what some are calling the "worst" ceremonial first pitch at Tampa Bay Rays' game against the Houston Astros on Sunday -- a completely lackluster leftward bounce. By her own admission, she also managed to knock a photographer's camera out of his hands with the baseball.

Seemingly unbowed by the 27-year-old Canadian's head-scratching "pitch," the Rays beat the Astros 5-0.

Jepsen's previous attempts haven't gone so poorly. Her ceremonial first pitch at an Orioles-Twins game in April whizzed right over Camden Yards' home plate.
