Watch: Fan throws beer can at Craig Kimbrel during Game 4
Craig Kimbrel had more than just the New York Yankees’ lineup to worry about as he entered Game 4 of the ALDS on Tuesday night.
TBS showed video of Kimbrel getting ready to make his way out of the bullpen to enter for the bottom of the 9th inning. The video showed a beer can come flying down into the bullpen, landing just behind the Boston Red Sox closer.

Kimbrel did not seem to notice what had happened. The security guards protecting him did.
That’s no way for the fans at Yankee Stadium to treat a visiting reliever, especially after Mookie Betts’ generous gesture the night before.
