This is a new twist
- Jenks admits to throwing a purpose pitch behind Kinsler with 2 outs in the 9th.
- He admits it's because Millwood hit Getz and Quentin earlier in the game.
- MLB is now reviewing it.
I hope they don't suspend him - he didn't hit him and if the article is to believed, it wasn't as if it was dangerous by going high. It was low and behind him. Did anyone see it?
Some quotes from Jenks:
"No, I meant to. To send a message," Jenks said, according to the newspaper. "Basically I was saying, 'I'm sick of seeing our guys get hit and hurt and almost get taken out of the game.' I threw it with intention."For the record, Ozzie didn't think the pitches from Millwood were intentional (at least that's what he claims.).Jenks added his intent wasn't to hit Kinsler.
"I'm not going to put a guy on in that situation," he said, according to the Tribune. "I was not going to hit him. I made my point with that pitch and it came across the way I wanted it to.
"I'm not going to go dirty. I was going to keep it low and behind him."
Do you think Jenks will be suspended?
Do you think Jenks should be suspended?
I don't think he should be but I bet he does get suspended.
