Dodgers: Trevor Bauer Throws a Dig at Home Plate Umpire After Blown Call

Trevor Bauer is doing what he does best so far this season. Throwing baseballs and making friends.

After a gutty effort on Friday night where he threw 126 pitches and pitched into the 7th inning, the right-hander was ready to throw a potshot at home plate umpire Chris Guccione for missing a key strike 3 call that cost Trevor about 10 more pitches in the inning.

I don’t think you can execute a better pitch than that. I know it was a strike, Will [Smith] knew it was a strike. I think everybody but the home plate umpire knew it was a strike.

Umpire Scorecards on Twitter identified that ball call as Guccione’s second worst missed call of the night.

Bauer still went on to record a strikeout to end that inning that went viral on social media.

Bauer has been everything he was advertised to be so far in his first season with the Dodgers. In 10 starts for LA, the 2020 NL Cy Young award winner has gone 5-2 with a 1.98 ERA and an NL-leading 88 strikeouts in 63.2 IP.

  1. It’s time for the electronic strike zone. Too many umpires miss too many pitches. It affects the outcome of games.

    1. O agreed. Thet can set it up where it goes directly to the um. No questions ask. That why nothing can be said and the um will always be right.
