David Ortiz Felt ‘Disrespected,’ Like At-Bat Was Taken Away From Him After Being Ejected Arguing Balls and Strikes (Video)


The Red Sox’ bats came alive Saturday night as Boston came out swinging en route to a 7-3 win over the Orioles.

One bat in particular, got a little more action than the others, however. In the seventh inning, David Ortiz thought he had earned a walk when home plate umpire Tim Timmons called the fourth pitch of the at-bat a strike.

Ortiz eventually struck out swinging two pitches later, and he took his anger out on Timmons and the dugout phone after being ejected.

Check out what Ortiz had to say about the tirade in the above video.

Aetna Strikeouts for A Cause

For every strikeout by a Red Sox pitcher at Fenway Park in June, Aetna will donate $250 to Boston Health Care for the Homeless Program. Through June 25, the donation mark stands at $30,000.

Through their continued efforts in the local community, Aetna is helping to build a healthier world -- one city and one strikeout at a time.
