Arizona Diamondbacks manager A.J. Hinch in a move to try to rile up the team, tried his hardest to get tossed after a close call at first with Augie Ojeda. The San Diego Padres are currently up 4-3 in the 7th.
Ojeda was clearly out, but it was close. Hinch found it the right opportunity for his first real argument. He tried so hard to get tossed. Unless he calls the umps mama a name there, it wasn’t going to happen. Ump saw right through it.
Maybe next time AJ.
