Why is the opposing pitcher overdoing it after rushing out of Harper COL dugout
It was in an away game against the Colorado Rockies at Coors Field in Denver on the 15th (Korea Standard Time). Philadelphia eventually lost 0-4 due to good pitching by opposing pitchers such as Colorado starter Kyle Freeland.
Philadelphia, whose five consecutive wins have stopped, has 20 wins and 20 losses, failing to narrow its five-game gap with the Atlanta Braves, the leader of the NL East.
Harper, who played as the third designated hitter, had no hits and two strikeouts in three at-bats. He marked a season batting average of 0.333 (13 hits in 39 at-bats), two home runs, five RBIs, 11 runs scored, and an OPS of 0.973.
Harper underwent elbow ligament surgery in November last year and returned on the 3rd, two months earlier than expected. Since then, the desire to win seems to have been activated again by playing 10 games until this day.
Harper was sent off shortly after the attack ended in the top of the seventh inning. Colorado’s second pitcher Jake Bird made a somewhat excessive gesture toward the third-base Philadelphia dugout as he handled Bryson Statt with a fly ball to left field and came down the mound after the inning.
He tapped the glove on his left hand with his right hand as if clapping and shouted a sound with something message at the Philadelphia players.
Harper started running to Bird, and bench clearing occurred between the players of both teams. Harper was initially stopped by Colorado catcher Elias Diaz. Then, as he shouted at Bird, his emotions and actions became more furious, and Harper could not enter the group fight area as Philadelphia Dusty Waddan, the third base coach, and Ben May, the first base umpire, blocked it again.
There were no punches between the players of both teams. Harper and Byrd were both called off at the same time.
Harper said after the game, “I got emotional. I understand you do that for one inning. However, once you talk about the team or about yourself and other teams, I think there is a problem at that time,” he said. In other words, Bird provoked the Philadelphia dugout first.
He then said, “Didn’t you see my reaction. I was very upset. “I just did what I had to do, and I just ran to the opponent’s dugout,” he said, admitting that he was furious at the time.
There was a premonition. Philadelphia hitters rarely hit opposing starter Freeland. He failed to score a timely hit from a number of scoring opportunities, including one out and second base in the top of the first inning, one out and second base in the second inning, one out and second base in the third inning, and one out and second base in the sixth inning. a situation in which the economy is on the rise 파워볼사이트
On top of that, manager Rob Thompson appealed to referee Ryan Wills and was even sent off in the top of the sixth inning when Kyle Schwaber struck out due to an unclear strike decision. Several things have occurred that stimulate Harper’s desire to win.
Thompson said, “(Harper) could do that. Screaming at the dugout? It shouldn’t be. He said, “It should never happen.” It also means that opposing pitcher Bird’s actions have gone too far.
Bird, however, said he did not yell at a specific player. “Sometimes my heart is furious on the mound,” he said. It was an important moment. The emotion became a little intense, and the opponent said, “I didn’t understand it and it was unusual.” I mean, Harper was too sensitive
