Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp and Texas Rangers catcher Robinson Chirinos have been each ejected from Wednesday night time’s recreation at Dodger Stadium after a collision on the plate brought on each benches to clear.
Kemp was making an attempt to attain from second base on Enrique Hernandez‘s two-out single to proper area within the backside of the third inning. But with Chirinos receiving the throw properly forward of him, Kemp lowered his shoulder and barreled into him.
After Kemp was tagged out to finish the inning, Chirinos bought up and shoved him. Kemp returned the shove as each benches and bullpens emptied and fashioned a scrum on the plate.
Rules have been put in place to outlaw runners from plowing into catchers, and catchers have to provide runners a lane to the plate normally. In this play, the throw dwelling took Chirinos straight into Kemp’s path dwelling.
