Chicago White Sox Tim Anderson (30) was ejected after expressing his furious anger after being struck out in vain.
Anderson started as the first shortstop in the game against the San Francisco Giants held at Guaranteed Rate Field in Chicago, Illinois on the 6th (Korean time) and recorded no hits in two at-bats.
Anderson, who hit a pitcher grounder against Logan Webb of San Francisco in the first at-bat, met Webb again in the third inning and fought a tenacious fight with three fouls. Anderson, who was driven by 1 ball and 2 strikes, got out of the plate by calling out time before Webb threw the 6th pitch. However, referee DJ Rayburn did not accept the time. Webb’s 83.3 mph (134.1 km/h) changeup landed in the strike zone and Anderson struck out.
When the strikeout decision was made, Anderson continued to protest as he entered the dugout and yelled into the dugout before being ordered out. It was Anderson’s eighth career ejection.토토사이트
“Anderson said he wasn’t ready,” White Sox manager Pedro Grifol told ESPN. He didn’t even look at the pitcher and withdrew from the plate. He probably said a timeout or something. However, he was not accepted. And he thinks that the performance he showed in the dugout is because of his passion to win the game. I don’t want to take issue with that,” Anderson wrapped up.
“I wasn’t going to throw a quick pitch at Anderson,” Webb said. But he probably thought so. The dugout kept yelling at me while I pitched five times. You can see what I’m talking about. He just kept yelling at me. I don’t think he should have been sent off. I think he spoke to me, not to the referee.”
The White Sox won the game 7-3 despite Anderson being ejected. Anderson had a batting average of .292 (7 hits in 24 at-bats), 1 RBI, and an OPS of .721 in six games this season.
