Twitter reacts to Gary Sanchez costing Yankees by not hustling

Gary Sanchez

Gary Sanchez was widely criticized for a couple of poor-effort plays that cost the New York Yankees during their 7-6 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays on Monday night.

During the first inning, Sanchez did not hustle to recover the baseball after he was charged with a passed ball. The result was a run coming around to score from second base.

Later in the game, Sanchez did not hustle out of the batter’s box following a ground ball that ended the game.

Sanchez was roundly criticized on Twitter for his lack of effort during the ninth inning. Here’s a sampling of what people were saying.

It was easy to see Sanchez appeared to loaf it on the way to first base. Data from Statcast supports what was seen on the broadcast and in the stadium.

His effort on both plays seems pretty inexcusable.
