Rays & Nationals Emptied The Benches Over Pitcher’s 3 Week Old Grudge

Tampa Bay pitcher Sergio Romo is apparently still mad that when the two teams met on June 6, Nationals center fielder Michael A. Taylor stole third on him while Washington had a 9-2 lead. Taylor ultimately scored on an error from Rays catcher Wilson Ramos during the Nats’ 11-2 victory. So Tuesday when Romo entered the game in the ninth inning with the bases loaded, he made it clear he was still angry. He struck out Taylor for the game’s final out before yelling in the direction of the batter and the Nationals’ dugout, leading to both teams’ benches clearing. – TO
