Red Sox walk-off after Verdugo is hit with an object thrown by fan
The incident occurred in the sixth inning at Yankee Stadium when Red Sox player Alex Verdugo was struck apparently by a baseball thrown from the crowd.
Dude who hit Verdugo with the ball was just sitting there tapping his leg nervous as hell PRAYING security came & got him. He didn’t argue one bit. Verdugo should get to throw one at his chest from a full crow hop. Dude is a piece of trash. pic.twitter.com/rVLwv6jIa4— Dallas Braden (@DALLASBRADEN209) July 18, 2021
The incident provoked Red Sox head coach Alex Cora to withdraw his team from the game. After the game Verdugo stated: "I wouldn’t want any Boston fans throwing shit at Yankees players or any player in general. That’s just the known rule."
The game resumed briefly after the delay but later progress was halted this time by rain and with the game in the sixth inning it was called as a 3-1 win for the Yankees.
CBS Sports claim that the fan was intermediately ejected from the stadium with Yankees manager Aaron Boone adding: "It's awful, embarrassing, unacceptable. My understanding is they did catch the guy. Hopefully, he's in jail right now. Yeah, that's just a bad situation," Boone said.
