Utley-Tejada collision. That is brutal. pic.twitter.com/5qQcPEcVBt— Matt Norlander (@MattNorlander) October 11, 2015
It seems their loss to the Mets last night got the Dodgers shook because during the second game in their series today, they resorted to dirty tactics to get ahead. To try and break up a double play that would've ended the 7th inning, Chase Utley purposefully slid into Mets shortstop Ruben Tejada. The move took Tejada out and a run was scored in the process. Not only did Utley get away with it, the Dodgers also challenged the play and upon review it was ruled that Tejada came off the bag for the catch & Chase Utley was awarded second base.
EXCEPT THAT UTLEY NEVER FUCKING TOUCHED THE BAG EITHER AND HAD NO INTENTION TO DO SO IN THE FIRST PLACE. HE JOGGED RIGHT OFF THE FIELD AFTER TAKING TEJADA OUT. THEN WE FIND OUT RUBEN TEJADA HAS A BROKEN FIBULA.
This is not football, this is baseball. You don't do some shit like that knowing you can seriously hurt a player and put their career in jeopardy.
The Dodgers went on to score three more runs in the inning and won the game 5-2.The series is now 1-1 & comes to New York on Monday for game 3.
Fuck the umpires, fuck Chase Utley and fuck the Dodgers.
