Cleveland Indians' Pitchers Continue to Hit New York Yankees' Batters
When you hit a lot of home runs, it goes without saying that opposing teams are going to pitch to you more aggressively.
The New York Yankees have hit the most home runs in the Majors this season, and as a result, they have also been the victims of the second most hit-by-pitches in the league.
The issue finally reached a boiling-over point this weekend in the Yankees on-going series against the Cleveland Indians.
Mark Teixeira, who had already been hit by a pitch earlier in the week by the Boston Red Sox, was plunked square in his number immediately following a Curtis Granderson home run on Friday.
Teixeira sprung up angrily, inciting a benches-clearing incident that resulted in both team's managers in a face-to-face confrontation.
Saturday's game between the two clubs resulted in another Yankee being drilled following another Curtis Granderson home run.
This time it was Alex Rodriguez who was hit by Indian's pitcher Mitch Talbot.
Talbot was ejected from the game following the hit-by-pitch.
The two teams are currently underway in New York in the third game of their four-game series. I will update this post if any more incidents occur during the game.
