The Red Sox didn’t like it when Yunel Escobar of the Rays took third base with his team leading 8-3 in the bottom of the seventh inning Sunday at Tropicana Field. MLB.com has the video …
It looks like Red Sox backup catcher David Ross was doing most of the jawing at Escobar from the dugout and then Gomes ran in from left field. Gomes, Escobar, and Sean Rodriguez were ejected.
Boston took a 10th straight loss in Sunday’s game. The defending champs are clearly frustrated.
Astros third baseman Alex Bregman apparently wasn’t happy with his mustache on Sunday afternoon as he shaved it off in between innings during his team’s contest against the Royals. Bregman walked and later scored in the Astros’ eight-run second inning, but when he took his next plate appearance in the fourth inning, he was clean-shaven.
Bregman made a throwing error in the seventh and finished 0-for-4 with the walk on the afternoon. The Astros won 11-3.
Bregman isn’t the only player to make headlines for his facial hair recently. Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper recently shaved his signature beard. The Yankees approve of what both players have done.
