Astros’ Zack Greinke Gets Cocky And Tells A’s Ramon Laureano What Pitch He Was Going To Throw, Immediately Gives Up Three-Run Homer

Fox Sports

Houston Astros pitcher Zack Greinke thought it was a good idea to give away what pitch he was going to throw beforehand and it ended up costing him.

During today’s Astros-A’s ALDS game, Greinke let Ramon Laureano know that he was going to throw when he put up two fingers and Laureano immediately crushed the ball for a three-run homer.

Fans mocked Greinke after he gave up the home run.

Update: Former pitcher Phil Hughes says that Greinke wasn’t giving away his pitch but was just communicating the catcher.
