The Ryan Dempster HBP Report

by Bill Chuck on August 19, 2013

Ryan Dempster performed a near-impossible feat last night: he created sympathy for Alex Rodriguez.

Leading off the 2nd, Sox starter Dempster faced A-Rod and with his first pitch he threw an 89 mph fastball behind his legs.

Message delivered.

Or so we thought.

After two more inside fastballs, on the 3-0 count, Dempster threw a 92 mph fastball right at A-Rod’s rib cage nailing him on his elbow.

As home plate umpire Brian O’Nora sent Rodriguez to first, he leapt in front of the plate and issued warnings to both benches.

Yanks manager Joe Girardi bolted out of the Yankees dugout asking the question we were all asking, “Why wasn’t Dempster ejected?”

Rodriguez ultimately scored the first run after he headed to first and in the 6th delivered a huge homer to centerfield, screaming his way around the bases and openly mocked Red Sox Nation by imitating David Ortiz‘ overly theatric kiss to the sky as he touched home plate. Before that inning was over, the inspired Yankees knocked out Dempster and were on their way to comeback 9-6 victory.

Dempster took the loss and now the Sox have to await whether he will miss a turn if he is suspended for his ill-advised HBP.

This was the 90th HBP of Dempster’s career and his first on a 3-0 count.
