So the Washington Nationals Max Scherzer was one out away from pitching a perfect game yesterday. He had two outs and two strikes on Jose Tabata in the 9th inning. Then, we witnessed one of the greatest injustices you will ever see in sports:
What a dooshnozzle. Obviously he realized he couldn’t get on base fairly, so he did the only thing he could do – intentionally lean into that pitch. This is why baseball is kind of a joke. Because apparently now you can intentionally jump in front of pitches to get on base. This is how baseball works. Personally I blame the ump. He easily could’ve told Tabata to calm his nani and get back up to the plate. Instead, he was rewarded for his shenanigans. What a poopsmooch.
