SAN FRANCISCO – One week later, the 2022 baseball season already has its first unwritten rules dispute.
By the end of the second half on Tuesday night, the Giants had already nine runs ahead of the Padres, ambushing their starters. yo darwish With six runs in the first and four more in the second. At that point, the game is over, for all intents and purposes. The drama was only in the beginning.
Stephen Duggar, whose solo smashed the last round of that second inning, quickly won out on second base by nine runs. Then, at the bottom of sixth place, with the Giants still leading by nine, Mauricio Dupont dropped one hit at the third base line.
Padres’ hideout did not respond kindly to the situation. Director Bob Melvin tweeted from the top step. Eric Hosmer, the first baseman, expressed his feelings for Dupont.
“I definitely told him how I felt, how we felt about it,” Hosmer said. Giants win 13-2 in Oracle Park. He said it was a sign that their staff gave him. I just told him that I think you should be a little smarter in this situation. You’ve obviously been playing professional football for a long period of time if you’re at that level. You have to be smarter than that.”
Giants felt otherwise. They felt that Aunt Dupont and Duggar robbery were within the unwritten rules. these they were They said smart plays.
“I fully support those two decisions,” Giants manager Gabi Kapler said. “Our goal is not exclusively to win one game in a series. It is to try to win the whole series. Sometimes, that means trying to go a little deeper into the opponent’s pen. I understand that many teams don’t like this strategy.”
“And I understand why. It’s something we talked about as a team before the season and that we were comfortable going forward with that strategy. It shouldn’t be disrespectful in any way. It’s because we feel comfortable and strategic. It’s the best way to win a series. When I say cool, I mean calm.” We’re not emotional about it. We’re not trying to hurt anyone. We just want to score as many kicks as possible, and force the other bowler to throw as many pitches as possible. If other clubs decide they want to do the same to us, we’ll have no problem. with her “.
Two years ago, of course, the Padres family was at the center of a brawl of Other Unwritten Rules, when Fernando Tates Jr. Hit the Grand Slam At 3-0 with his team ahead by seven games in Texas. The Rangers weren’t too happy, and sailed the next pitch behind Mane Machado. In the days following the accident, Padres defended TatisPointing out the importance of jogging over jogging.
On Tuesday night, Padres was nine games behind and appeared to have trouble with bending (or breaking) unwritten rules in order to add to the score. Nothing else came of the crash, however, and the Giants easily won the match, with right-back Will Myers scoring the eighth inning for San Diego.
Dupont’s hit came at the bottom of sixth with right-hand Denilson Lammette on the hill. It was a perfectly executed hit right up to the third base line. Lamet had no chance. Machado, Padres’ third baseman, barely moved.
“I’m not trying to disrespect anyone,” Dupont said. “We’re just trying to win a series. That means going on rallies until we can burn the guns. That’s it. I’m not trying to disrespect anyone.”
However, at first base Dubón arrives at Hosmer furious and hides the Padres furiously. After that, Melvin only said, “I don’t have any comment on either of them. I really don’t want to go into it.”
The Padres and Giants play 17 again this season, and their game series is scheduled to end on Wednesday at 12:45 PM PT. Does Hosmer consider this to be over?
“It’s game over, we lost, it happened,” he said. “Obviously we were mad about it. But we are not going to keep talking about it. It happened. That is. Go to the next stage, try to win a series.”
In the eyes of the giants, that was all they had been trying to do all along.
