[MLB] A-Rod hit by pitch against Red Sox
n the second inning, Boston Red Sox starter Ryan Dempster drilled New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez with 3-0, 92 mph fastball. In the sixth, Rodriguez drilled Dempster for a long solo homer that sparked the Yankees' comeback victory.
"It was the ultimate payback," Rodriguez said after the team's 9-6 win.
When Dempster plunked Rodriguez in the elbow with a fastball, it resulted in both benches being issued warnings, the ejection of Yankees manager Joe Girardi and the bullpens of both teams emptying onto the field. No punches were thrown.
With the Fenway crowd chanting "You're a cheater" to start the second inning, Dempster's first pitch to Rodriguez, an 89 mph fastball, sailed behind him, nearly catching him on the left leg.
After two more inside fastballs, Dempster's 3-0 pitch nailed Rodriguez squarely on the left elbow pad. Rodriguez interpreted it as Dempster's way of saying he did not like how Rodriguez has handled the 211-game suspension for performance-enhancing drug violations that Rodriguez is appealing.
"Whether you like me or hate, that was wrong," said Rodriguez, who finished the night with three hits and raised his average to .319 in 47 at-bats. "That was unprofessional and silly. It was kind of a silly way to get someone hurt on your team as well."

Dempster is a fucking liar, "I tried to pitch inside" - Dempster. Complete bullshit, you threw 2 pitches at Alex that 1 hit him & 1 missed him, and the rest of the game no one else on the Yankees got hit or almost got hit.

I was actually at this game sitting in the green monster seats. I took a video of the benches clearing right after he got hit. I'll upload it when I get home.
