MLB playoffs: Dusty Baker not impressed with Anthony Rizzo’s game-winning hit

Filed under: Real Estate — X-NINJA @ 2:45 am

Nationals fans and Cubs slugger Anthony Rizzo had one thing in common late in Monday’s Game 3 of the NLDS: Why pitch to Rizzo with a runner at second and first base open in a tie game?Rizzo made Nats manager Dusty Baker pay for the decision, hitting a game-winning bloop single to left field as outfieldersJayson Werth and Michael A. Taylor were unable to make the catch. “I’m thinking, ‘Don’t pitch to me right there,’ to be honest. I Rollie Fingers Jersey love this situation with a base open,” Rizzo told TBS after the 2-1 win gave the Cubs a 2-1 series lead.Asked about Rizzo’s clutch hit and recent playoff succe s after the game, Baker was unimpre sed with Rizzo’s hitthat should have been caught.”Well, yeah, I gue s. I mean, it’s not really turning it on when you bloop one in there, you know what I mean?” Baker told reporters after the game. “So that ball is kind of in never-never land out there, between three merging players on our team. Like I said, you couldn’t have thrown the ball any better if he had thrown the ball in there.”Baker was also roasted by Nationals fans for pulling ace Max Scherzer (hamstring) after he allowed his first hit after 6 1/3 innings. Baker called onSammy Solis, who promptly gave up a game-tying single to Albert Almora Jr., who was pinch hitting for Kyle Schwarber. The run was charged to Scherzer, who was visiblyupset in the dugout after getting taken out of the game.”It was very difficult, but you know, we thought Max had had enough, especially coming off the injury, and you know, Schwarber is a dangerous man,” Baker said. “I probably couldn’t live with myself if Schwarber had hit one out of the park on you, which he’s dangerous to do that.”So we thought we made the right decision. You know, he got a changeup up to Almora and you know, that was, you know they continue to get the clutch hits. You know, we haven’t gotten them, yet. But we will.”
