Athletics' Josh Reddick: No way Kelvin Herrera's pitch just slipped


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/20/2015) The Royals and Athletics are still not playing nice after this weekend's series. Royals pitcher Kelvin Herrera threw behind third baseman Brett Lawrie Sunday, the second straight day Lawrie was targeted after he took out shortstop Alcides Escobar at second base Friday with what Kansas City called a dirty slide.

Athletics slugger Josh Reddick isn't buying on Herrera claiming the ball just slipped out of his hand, according to MLB Network Radio.

"The HBP Saturday should have been it. For them to do the unprofessional thing Herrera did is inexcusable," Reddick said. "[Herrera] saying the ball slipping is a complete joke, no way that ball is slipping. Gimme a break."

Herrera was ejected immediately for his part in the back and forth.

Some claimed Herrera was retaliating for Scott Kazmir hitting Lorenzo Cain in the foot to start the game. 

"Knowing there are warnings out, Kazmir's not going to hit someone in the foot intentionally," Reddick said.

"They want me to blow up, but why fuel the fire?" Lawrie told MLB.com. "Why dump another thing of gasoline on it when I can just put a smile on?"

Lawrie had been the center of controversy after his hard slide Friday night injured Kansas City shortstop Alcides Escobar. The hit-by-pitch came right after Josh Reddick homered to give Oakland a 5-0 lead.
