  • Watch: Umpire Joe West nailed by throw on stolen base

    8 days ago - By Yardbarker

    Umpire Joe West was nailed by a throw from the catcher during the eighth inning of Game 1 of the ALCS on Saturday. Jake Marisnick was on first for the Houston Astros with one out in the top of the eighth inning and attempted to steal second base. Boston Red Sox catcher Christian Vazquez tried to throw out Marisnick, but his throw sailed off line. West, the second base umpire, was unable to duck out of the way and took the ball off the top of his chest: The play reminded some of the scene from “Happy Gilmore.” Red Sox fans oddly booed after West got hit, perhaps thinking he prevented the...

  • Alex Cora ejected for arguing bad strike call on Benintendi

    8 days ago - By Yardbarker

    Boston Red Sox manager Alex Cora was ejected for just the second time in his managerial career after arguing with the umpires following the fifth inning of Saturday's Game 1 of the ALCS. Andrew Benintendi was called out on strikes to end the fifth on a 3-2 pitch that was a tad outside. Benintendi was not happy about the strike call that got Houston Astros pitcher Justin Verlander out of a jam with runners on second and third. Cora was apparently yelling at the umpires after the inning and got tossed. Reporters say he had words for home plate umpire James Hoye and then ran onto the field...

  • Watch: Kevin Youkilis throws out first pitch before ALCS Game 1

    8 days ago - By Yardbarker

    Kevin Youkilis may have finished his MLB career as a member of the Yankees, but he spent the majority of it playing for the Red Sox. Youkilis was drafted by the team in 2001, and he made his debut in May 2004, to replace then-starter Bill Mueller at third base. It was from that time on that a star was born, as Youkilis treated the Fenway Park faithful to plenty of clutch hits in pivotal moments over the years. As such, it was no surprise that the Red Sox invited Youk to throw out the first pitch before Game 1 of the American League Championship Series on Saturday night. He received a great...
