Ryan Dempster drilled Alex Rodriguez in the middle of the back with a 3-0 count in the top of the 2nd inning of Sunday night’s Red Sox – Yankees game. Dempster threw the ball behind A-Rod on the first pitch of the at bat. Somehow, Dempster was not tossed. Joe Girardi also seemed surprised that Dempster was not shown the door. He had words for the umpires, the Red Sox and Ryan Dempster who he appeared to call an “f—ing p—y.”
David Ortiz will likely get hit later in the game and the benches will clear. Boston leads the AL East while the Yankees are 6.5 games out in the Wild Card race.
