Lorenzo Cain was not joyful together with his division rivals on Saturday evening.
Within the high of the primary inning of his group’s eventual 7-2 loss to the NL Central foe St. Louis Cardinals, the Milwaukee Brewers outfielder was drilled by a pitch from Cardinals starter Miles Mikolas and proceeded to chirp within the route of the St. Louis bench. That was adopted by a sequence of occasions the place Brewers starter Wade Miley threw behind Cardinals outfielder Tyler O’Neill within the backside of the inning, resulting in each benches behind warned and Milwaukee supervisor Craig Counsell being ejected for arguing the warning.
Addressing reporters after the sport, Cain stated that he thought the Cardinals threw at him deliberately, noting that it was not the primary time they’d hit him, per Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
Cain entered play Saturday hitting simply .162 in 11 video games versus the Cardinals this season, so it in all probability doesn’t have something to do together with his efficiency in opposition to them. What we do know for sure although is that the Brewers and the Cardinals have already had some severe unhealthy blood in current months.
