Pirates' Sean Rodriguez 'challenges' Phillies' Kevin Slowey to fight
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(3/30/15) The Pirates torched Phillies pitcher Kevin Slowey Monday for six runs Monday, but one player was still frustrated with how Slowey acted on the mound.
Left fielder Sean Rodriguez stepped into the batter's box in the fifth inning and believed Slowey quick pitched him, leading to a strikeout, reports MLB.com.
Rodriguez was visibly displeased with the move and yelled at Slowey as he walked off the field, who was staring right back at him. Rodriguez continued to jaw at Slowey in the fifth, leading to both benches clearing.
"It surprises me to be that upset, and challenging somebody to a physical altercation hardly seems like the best way to resolve your frustrations," Slowey said. "I was kind of taken by surprise at his animosity after his at-bat. I know the kind of guy that he purports to be. That surprised me that that would be his choice of words and reaction. I guess I understand the frustration of a singular failure. It's a game of failures. But to react that way to me was very surprising."
Manager Clint Hurdle remained neutral on the topic after the game.
"The umpires don't have to give you time. I'm not here to be judge or jury. We'll talk about it internally, about how we can do better job of not letting it happen again, or what we'll do if it does happen again."
