Yeah, and Trout was the tying run (I believe) in that game. I do get the hitter being upset but the manager should not fan the flames the next day. Or do it so obviously.All of this reads as the Angels doing stupid things in frustration as their 27-17 start gets wasted. Trout was not beaned last night, it was a brushback because he's murdering them at the plate, but apparently Trout was really upset after the game.
I thought breaking pitchers was more their speed.Vinnie Pasquantino will be making his MLB debut for the Royals tonight. He had among the better slash lines in MiLB last year, with a .949 OPS in A+, before getting promoted to AA and putting up a .310/.405/.560/.965 in AA over 55 games, with 11 homers and walking more than he struck out.
This year, as a 24 year old in AAA, he is at a .948 OPS, with 16 doubles and 18 home runs, and 37 BBs to 36 K's.
I am positive that the Royals will break him.
Yes. Thats a local celebrity in SF.So can you just bring animals into Oracle Park? A Giants fan is carrying around the biggest rabbit I’ve ever seen.
Evergreen tweet.This is my favorite old tweet about the Ohtani/Trout Angels.
It's not a force play at all. The runners left before the ball was caught, so they have to tag up before advancing. Touching the base while in possession of the ball, before the runner returns, is all that is necessary to call the runner out.My guess is that because he tagged the runner before touching the base, it is not a force out and the run counts? Not 100% sure on the rule but that's my only plausible explanation.
It would have been easier to throw to 2nd and ends the inning.
I get that. But he tagged the runner furst and that was the 3rd out. So at that point does the run count? InterestingSo is the appeal only necessary because the third baseman tagged the runner first? Because immediately after he tagged the runner, he stepped on the bag. Otherwise, how is stepping on the bag not taking care of the mythical "fourth out".

Emilio Pagan is my favorite pitcher. He's never pitched for the team I root for.
Pagan blows it against Cleveland again – a 3-run lead in the 10th – un-friggin-believable!Cleveland's MVP so far this season.
Just trying to get close, I searched for pitchers who allowed 8 runs or more in an inning or less of work with at least 50 pitches thrown. These are the hits that go toward the question (the rest were pitchers who recorded no more than three outs but pitched in two different innings to do it):Pirates let a reliever out to dry in a blowout in the 8th inning... 56 pitches and 8 runs scored. Don't know what the major league record for pitches thrown in an inning by one pitcher, but that must be pretty close.
Based off of what I'm seeing, there are 22 instances all time of a pitcher getting through 1 or less innings in relief with 50 or more pitches thrown. Vieaux's 56 is 4th on that list, with Scott Brow ("I've literally never heard of him" - Stephen Toast) having thrown 66 pitches in an inning of work (though spanning the 1st and 2nd innings), allowing 6 runs on 6 walks and 5 hits in a 13-1 loss to the Red Sox on June 21, 1994. Amazingly, Brow didn't allow a singe home run in that appearance.Pirates let a reliever out to dry in a blowout in the 8th inning... 56 pitches and 8 runs scored.

The Jays were in serious pitching trouble after Gausman took a 100 MPH line drive off his ankle in the 2nd inning of the first game and had to leave the game. In the 2nd game they had to leave their AAA callup starter (who has no business pitching in the majors) in to soak up innings and damage - and he gave up 10 runs in 4 innings.And the lambs fought back today. Swept a doubleheader, 6-2 and 11-5. Isaac Paredes continues his breakout. 13 HR in 122 AB. .915 OPS.
