“That team, that’s why they’re in first place, because all the time, they play hard,” Ivan Rodriguez said. “And when you play the game hard, those things happen.”After the play, Hunter tripped on a bat and stumbled into Rodriguez as he walked toward the mound.

“He pushed me pretty hard, like a fight in the hood,” Hunter said. “The ghetto came out. I hate that. I want to apologize to the fans.”
