Manny Ramirez's Dodger career ends on a high note

5 Comments

Here’s hoping the good people at Major League Baseball don’t take this video of Manny Ramirez’s last at bat as a Dodger down from You Tube. Because the fan’s commentary as Manny gets ejected for arguing balls and strikes on the only pitch he saw yesterday is added value that the MLB.com feed just won’t provide.

Starling Marte carted off field after outfield collision

Pirates center fielder Starling Marte was carted off the field during the eighth inning of Friday’s contest against the Giants. Marte was racing in to field a fly ball from Yangervis Solarte when he collided at full speed with shortstop Erik González. The two were knocked down by the impact and quickly attended to by the Pirates’ staff, who helped Marte sit up on a cart and removed him from the game.

The extent of either player’s injuries, if any, have yet to be revealed. Following the incident, both Marte and González were officially removed from the lineup, with JB Shuck shifting from left to center field, Jung Ho Kang moving over to shortstop, Colin Moran covering third base, and Jason Martin in the left field corner.

The Pirates currently lead the Giants 4-1 in the ninth.
