This is the whole story of the incident. Texas and Houston will face off in Game 5 of the American League Championship Series (ALCS) on the 21st. At the end of the game, bench clearing occurred in which players from both teams poured out to the ground. Garcia entered the batter’s box in the bottom of the eighth inning because Abreu’s 98.9-mile (about 159.2km) first pitch hit Garcia’s left shoulder. 온라인경마
Garcia hit a 95-mile (about 152.9 kilometers) four-seam fastball against Houston’s “Golden Bull” Justin Verlander in the bottom of the seventh inning, trailing 0-1, and hit a come-from-behind three-run shot that went well over the left-center fence. At that time, Garcia’s ball hit so well that he could intuit that it was a home run as soon as he left the bat, and Garcia stared at the ball for a long time after hitting a home run and also performed a ceremony in the process of stepping on the home plate.
Garcia judged that he threw an “empty ball” on his ceremony during the previous home run, and expressed his fierce emotion after being hit on the shoulder by Abreu’s 98.9-mile fastball. The target was not for Abreu, but for catcher Martin Maldonado. When Garissa and Maldonado argued, players from both teams poured out and bench-clearing broke out.
There is another problem here. In fact, despite the fact that it was a close game and there was no reason to throw a hit ball as part of it, when the judges ordered Abreu, who recorded a “dune,” this time Houston head coach Dusty Baker was sent off in a big explosion. In particular, Baker defies the referee’s order to leave, and the game may be suspended for a long time as he does not leave the ground. And the situation ended when Garcia, who caused bench clearing, was also sent off.
In response, the Major League Baseball secretariat ruled that Abreu intentionally threw a pitch hit by Garcia and imposed a two-game suspension with a fine. As per the disciplinary action, Abreu will not be able to take the mound in Game 6, Game 7, or Game 1 of the World Series. But Abreu decided to appeal the secretariat’s decision.
Therefore, Abreu is able to take the mound in Game 6. However, it is expected to have a significant impact on future series. If he loses the appeal, he will not be able to take the mound in Game 1 or 2 of the World Series even if he confirms his advance to the World Series in Game 6, and if he fails to end the series in Game 6, he may not be able to take the mound in Game 7 or Game 1 of the World Series.
According to ‘MLB.com ‘, Baker and Garcia are expected to be fined in the future, and Lance McCullers Jr. and Matt Bush, who were strongly protesting, will not be allowed to sit in the remaining Championship Series dugout.
Meanwhile, Abreu pitched in 10 games in the postseason last year and had a five-hold “zero” ERA, helping Houston win the World Series, and again this year, he had a 1.42 ERA in two holds in seven games, three wins, two losses, 24 holds, five saves, and a 1.75 ERA in 72 games in the regular season.
