A-Rod Hit By Pitch, Then Hits Home Run

A-Rod Hit By Pitch, Then Hits Home Run

Alex Rodriguez has been hit by a pitch in his first at-bat, prompting the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox to clear the benches and bullpens at Fenway Park. (Breitbart Sports Note: Rodriguez later smashed a 6th inning home run to centerfield to cut the Red Sox lead to 6-4)

Yankees manager Joe Girardi ran onto the field, threw his cap to the ground and was ejected Sunday night. He was tossed during a heated argument after plate umpire Brian O’Nora warned both teams against further trouble.

Boston pitcher Ryan Dempster hit Rodriguez in the second inning with a 3-0 pitch. Dempster threw his first pitch of the inning behind the legs of Rodriguez, missed inside with the next two pitches and then threw a fastball that glanced off A-Rod’s elbow pad and deflected into his back.

Rodriguez was recently suspended 211 games by Major League Baseball in a drug case. He is appealing and allowed to play until there is a decision.
