Nationals’ Shawn Kelley regrets his immature behavior on mound

Shawn Kelley

Washington Nationals reliever Shawn Kelley expressed regret over his immature behavior on the mound Tuesday.

The Nationals destroyed the New York Mets 25-4, leading to some funny Twitter reactions. What wasn’t so funny was the Nats relievers who pitched in such a blowout.

Kelley was tasked with closing out the Nats’ 25-1 lead in the ninth inning. He actually allowed four hits and three runs before getting the final out. After allowing a two-run home run to Austin Jackson, Kelley threw his glove in disgust.

After the game, Kelley said he was frustrated because he felt confused by the umpires.

He acknowledged the immaturity of his glove throw and said it was wrong.

That’s big of him to say that. And maybe pitching in that much of a blowout did bother him, regardless of whether he’ll admit it or not.
