Found August 18, 2013 on Reading Between The Seams:

You never know what you’re going to get when the Boston Red Sox face the New York Yankees.  But if Alex Rodriguez is involved, it will be interesting.  On ESPN’s Sunday Night Baseball, Red Sox hurler Ryan Dempster went right after Rodriguez.  Not over the plate, but behind him, two off the plate in, then in the ribs (on a 3-0 pitch, of course).  Watch (courtesy ESPN via YouTube/Sportsawesomeness): Yankees skipper Joe Girardi wasted no time protesting the clear intent, and dutifully was thrown the shower by home plate umpire Brian O’Nora (who warned both teams immediately).  Girardi did what a manager was supposed to do, protecting his players at all cost.  Not sure why Dempster wasn’t ejected as he blatantly threw at Alex several times.  The Yankees plated two in the inning, and then Rodriguez exacted a measure of revenge by taking Demspter deep in the 6th inning (giving a slight glare to the pitcher as he neared second base.  No other bean ball retaliation from the Bronx Bombers, a retaliation would clearly be an ejection, so we might see something in the later innings with less to impose upon the bullpen. You can’t script this stuff, folks. - David Whitlock Be sure to like our Facebook Page Or follow us on Twitter - David Whitlock Follow @lhd_on_sports - Blog Follow @RBTS_baseball - Sports-Kings Follow @realsportskings The post Ryan Dempster takes aim at Alex Rodriguez, succeeds on fourth pitch appeared first on Reading Between The Seams.
