Phillies Giants Brawl Update
August 7, 2011 by staff
As in, no incident. No brushback fields. Even the pre-match warnings by the umpires to each bank. “What happened yesterday was yesterday, and today is today,” said Giants receiver Eli Whiteside after the game.
Whiteside was dismissed after Friday’s altercation that began when Ramon Ramirez hit Shane Victorino Phillies with a pitch. Ramirez and Victorino were also dismissed.
Placido Polanco, who was the runner on first base, ran toward the plate before him down Whiteside.
Before Saturday’s game, the Giants, Bruce Bochy defended the Whiteside reaction.
“It’s a difficult place,” Bochy said. “It has all kinds of faces to cover He’s not trying to protect the pitcher Whitey If anyone knows, not a fighter -. but that will protect their pitchers.
“He saw a player come from the side of there and came to his feet, but it was like I was throwing punches or anything.”
Bochy said he expects the office to issue any fines MLB and / or suspensions Monday it deems appropriate, but acknowledged that it was only guessing.
Negotiation Romo Sergio Romo entered Saturday’s game with runners on the corners and one out in the ninth. Hunter Pence proceeded to retire in a popup window I was short and Raul ez? On a cruise to the left.
Romo has retired 31 consecutive batters. Think about that for a moment: That is indeed a perfect game and four more outs.
That is less than the National League record set by Giants right-hander Jim Barr in August 1972 10. White Sox lefty Mark Buehrle set the major league record of 45 July 2009.
