Giants Pitcher Walks a Bunch of Dodgers and Throws His Glove in the Trash
Giants LHP Taylor Rogers is in the market for a new glove. On Wednesday, he entered a tie game in the 6th inning against the Dodgers.
Trayce Thompson pinch-hit for David Peralta, and he walked. Next up was Chris Taylor, who got to a full-count, and then drew a walk on a pitch clock violation. Mookie Betts came up to the plate next, and you’ll never guess what happened — he drew a base on balls.
Then, it was Freddie Freeman’s turn to hit. And, in one of the best at-bats we’ve seen in a while, 15 pitches later, he drew a walk, too.
Rogers was then taken out of the game and… expressed some frustration. Take a look for yourself:
Yes, that’s Rogers throwing his glove in the trash, and then smashing his hands on the dugout bench.
It’s hard to blame him, as that’s one of the worse outings a pitcher could have. His final line was 0.0 innings pitched, four walks and four earned runs. Oh, and he came away with the loss.
Baseball can be a difficult sport sometimes, and this was one of those moments. Fortunately for the Dodgers, they got the better end of it, and a much-needed 10-5 win to end the road trip.
