Gabe Kapler upset at Braves for throwing at Rhys Hoskins

Gabe Kapler

Gabe Kapler had a crow to pluck with the Atlanta Braves after Sunday’s game.

The Philadelphia Phillies defeated the Braves 5-1 in a contest that featured a solo home run off the bat of Bryce Harper in the seventh inning. The next batter was Phillies slugger Rhys Hoskins, and Braves righty Shane Carle took out his frustration on him with a beanball, promptly earning an ejection.

After the game, Kapler, the Phillies manager, called out Atlanta for throwing at Hoskins. Martin Frank of the Delaware News Journal offered the quote.

Kapler’s interesting wording aside, Hoskins was drilled nine times last season, which was among the higher marks in the NL. At the rate 2019 has started, hopefully Hoskins still has his special helmet that Twitter loved so much.
