This one made me laugh a lot. The umpire tossed Phillies reliever Yacksel Rios for hitting Justin Turner with a slider and nobody on either side agreed that that was appropriate. Even Turner laughs right there when Rios was tossed. So dumb.

I’m all about preventing the game from turning into a bean-ball-fest, but that’s not at all what was about to happen. The Phils were down big which is why Rios was in the game in the first place. He is not a good pitcher with an ERA over 6 in over 55 career innings. The ball got away from him like I’m sure it does often and he accidentally hit Turner with an offspeed pitch. So so dumb.
