IN THE SECOND inning of last night’s MLB meeting between the Boston Red Sox and the New York Yankees, things got nasty (even by the standard these sides normally bring to the table).
Boston’s Ryan Dempster appeared to hit Alex Rodriguez on purpose, possibly because of the ongoing ‘Biogenesis’ probe surrounding the Yankees star.
Dempster’s first pitch to A-Rod went behind the slugger’s legs. The next two pitches were both inside, that clearly left Rodriguez upset. Finally, on the fourth pitch of the at bat Dempster hit A-Rod with a pitch up and in. The beaning sparked warnings from the umpire and an eventual ejection of Yankees manager Joe Girardi.

Rodriguez will leave Boston bruised, but still looking smug. In the sixth inning he hit a home run off a Dempster pitch to set the Yankees up for a 9-6 comeback win.
