Boston Crowd Punished For Cheering Act Of Petty Violence Against Alex Rodriguez

A-Rod gets one in the back then hits a home run.

In the top of the 2nd inning of Sunday night’s Yankees-Red Sox game, Boston pitcher Ryan Dempster fired three straight inside pitches to Alex Rodriguez.

Make that four.

The home plate umpire warned both clubs that any further shenanigans would result in ejection.

Wait. What? A warning? Dempster didn’t get ejected for throwing four straight pitches at a guy who’s known to be extremely unpopular among fellow players? Yankees manager Joe Girardi, what do you have to say about that?

Yeah, totally.

Yes! That’s what I’m talking about. There’s finally a little fight in this team.

And wouldn’t you know it, A-Rod would go on to hit a home run in the sixth inning and the Yankees would come back to win the game.

Don’t look now (like, literally don’t look at the standings, because the Yankees are six games behind, which kind of undercuts our premise), but the Yankees-Red Sox rivalry is back.
