Mike Fiers calls Stanton ‘childish’ for reaction to hit by pitch

Giancarlo Stanton Mike Fiers

Mike Fiers called Giancarlo Stanton “childish” for the way he reacted to being hit by a pitch on Monday night.

The Detroit Tigers pitcher hit Stanton with a pitch in the third inning of the second game of a double-header on Monday. Keep in mind that Fiers also hit Stanton with a pitch in the face in 2014, causing the slugger serious injuries.

Stanton stared down Fiers after being hit.

After the game, Fiers called Stanton “childish” and said that it’s obvious he lost control of a pitch and wasn’t trying to hit the slugger intentionally.

Stanton got Fiers with a solo homer in the sixth, but the Tigers won 4-2 and Fiers picked up the victory.

If Fiers can’t understand Stanton’s reaction, then he’s clueless. How could he not wonder about Fiers’ motives after being hit by him yet again?
