HOUSTON (AFP) – A day after Houston participant Jose Seri referred to as his home-walk celebration in opposition to the New York Mets a “mistake,” he appeared to retract Wednesday with an obscene tweet that was later deleted.
Whereas Siri’s tweet didn’t instantly deal with the incident, she stated: “Bad (expletive) opinions. Enjoy.” It was rapidly deleted earlier than Wednesday’s sport.
Houston took a 7-2 lead within the eighth inning in opposition to the Mets on Tuesday when Serre lower a 0-for-10 drop with Homer solo to the practice tracks over left area at Minute Maid Park. Turning his racket and admiring the shot for just a few seconds earlier than working again to first base, sequence supervisor Dusty Baker wasn’t completely happy.
“He should have run,” Becker stated after the match. “Back in our days, the next guy would have had some training.”
Siri was requested in regards to the incident after the match and appeared remorseful.
“I know I made a mistake there,” Siri stated Tuesday night time via a translator. “I spoke to some of our guys, yes, I made a mistake.”
New York’s third baseman, Eduardo Escobar, stated one thing to Ciri as he went about third base after Homer, and the hunter Martin Maldonado spoke with Escobar for a long time When Escobar got here to the racket within the ninth sport.
Siri stated he did not know what Escobar stated.
He stated, “I couldn’t hear anything. I was just running.”
Mets coach Buck Showalter stated a few of his gamers have been upset by Seri’s actions, however many weren’t.
“There are certain things you talk about — right and wrong — but you don’t want to force the way you grew up in the game (on her),” Showalter stated. You are speculated to be offended about that.”
Showalter added that the player’s teammates often monitor things like this, but there is one sure way to prevent it.
“The way you keep it from happening is by not letting him hit the ball over the fence either,” Showalter said.
