Dodgers Pitcher Joe Kelly Told Carlos Correa ‘Nice Swing, Bitch’, ‘You Gotta Cheat To Hit’ After Striking Him Out Which Led To Benches Clearing

by 1 week ago

Things got heated between the Dodgers pitcher Joe Kelly and Astros Carlos Correa on Tuesday night.

Kelly, who was on the Boston Red Sox team that got beat by the “cheating” Astros team in the 2017 Division Series, got things going in the sixth inning when he threw a 96-mph fastball over the head of Alex Bregman, then a curveball over the head of Carlos Correa a few batters later.

Kelly would go on taunt Correa after striking him out by yelling ‘ you gotta cheat to hit” followed by several other expletives which led to the benches clearing.

According to Astros manager Dusty Baker, Kelly yelled ‘nice swing, bitch” after the strikeout which set off Correa.

After the game, Kelly said that he didn’t throw at the Astros players’ heads on purpose when asked about the incident.

Update: Kelly has been suspended for eight games by the MLB for his actions on Tuesday night.
