The game's winning pitcher didn't quite back Sabathia up there.
Unless Kimbrel forgot to wipe before entering the game, I'm going to take a guess and say that's a little bit of pine tar. He entered the game in the ninth with a three-run lead, loaded the bases, allowed two runs, nearly gave up a walk-off grand slam to Gary Sanchez, before finally getting Gleyber Torres on a grounder to third to wrap it up.
Following the Yankees' win in Game 2 at Fenway Park in Boston, Judge played the Sinatra tune from a boombox while walking past the Red Sox. "He's always bad. He's a bad umpire". The rapper appeared on retired Red Sox legend David Ortiz's Instagram story flying her true colors after the Sox beat the Yankees 4-3 on Tuesday to move on to the ALCS, saying that she's a Red Sox fan from birth because it runs in her blood.
"Throw the ball over the plate, CC", Porcello said when asked about Sabathia's comments. During Game 3, Hernandez had three calls overturned by replay, which was the latest chapter in a career that has featured plenty of complaints from players on how he calls games. "You gotta put the ball over the white part of the plate and then you get the strikes called". "It doesn't matter how many times he sues Major League Baseball".
I'm sure just about every pitcher uses some kind of substance to help them grip the baseball, which is a good thing since, you know, they are throwing over 95 miles per hour and it'd be a good thing if they have control of it.
