Rich Hill admits he stepped off mound so Dodgers fans could boo Yuli Gurriel longer
It was no accident that Dodgers starter Rich Hill took his sweet time as Houston Astros slugger Yuli Gurriel came to the plate in the second inning Tuesday night in Game 6 of the World Series.
Hill was only allowing boos from the Dodger Stadium crowd to linger a tad longer.
Hill stepped off the rubber as Gurriel, who directed a racist gesture at Dodgers starter Yu Darvish during Game 3 in Houston, Custom Houston Astros Jerseys stepped into the box for his first at bat here since the incident. Hill then meandered around the mound before finally delivering his first pitch.
“That’s a subject that’s disheartening and unfortunately, I don’t think the punishment really fits the action," Hill said after the Dodgers' 3-1 Game 6 victory.
"And I think that, rightfully so, the fans spoke out and understood what was going on. So I gave them their time to voice their opinion.’’
Gurriel, who flew out in that at bat, went 1-for-4 in Game 6. His actions after hitting a Game 3 home run off Darvish, a native of Japan, sparked a subplot that has roiled this World Series.
Gurriel was suspended without pay for five games by Major League Baseball, although the punishment was delayed until the start of the 2018 regular season, enabling him to play the remainder of this series. He hit Custom Chicago Cubs Jerseys a crucial home run two nights later in Game 5.
Tommy Custom Cleveland Indians Jerseys Lasorda's message for Dave Roberts: 'Haven't won (expletive) unless you win tomorrow'
Tommy Lasorda’s role with the Los Angeles Dodgers is largely ceremonial these days. Yet, even at 90 years old, the Hall of Fame manager still does not want for spunk.
Moments after the Dodgers forced a Game 7 of the World Series with a 3-1 victory over the Houston Astros, Lasorda had a message for Dave Roberts, the man who now occupies the manager’s office at Dodger Stadium.
“You haven’t won (expletive) unless you win tomorrow,” Lasorda told Roberts, according to numerous accounts.
Lasorda would know, it seems. He’s been on both sides of World Series outcomes, the devastation and the ecstasy. The Dodgers lost consecutive World Series to the New York Yankees in 1977 and 1978. They reversed the outcome in beating the Yankees in 1981, and then stunned the favored Oakland Athletics in 1988.
Lasorda’s Dodgers won eight division titles in his 21 years as manager. Yet he never experienced what Roberts will Wednesday night: A World Series Game 7 at Dodger Stadium.
Just win, Dave.
