Breaking: Ball to the head of Lindor causes the first row of the year in the Mets vs. Nationals (Video)

The indiscipline did not take long to become present in the 2022 MLB season, since just on the second day of activity, in the duel between the New York Mets and the Washington Nationals we have the first brawl of the campaign. The NYM and Nationals dugouts were emptied.

It was the top of the fifth inning at Nationals Park, when Puerto Rican Francisco Lindor stopped to bat, short stop of the visiting team (Mets), who had a runner on second base, with no out; Lindor squared off to touch and sacrifice with the account against him 0-1:

From the outset, the Mets were already winning the game 4-3 by the minimum, so veteran reliever Steve Cishekof the Nationals, threw a fastball very close to Lindor, which hit the face of the former player of the then Cleveland Indians, who fell to the ground conscious.

Immediately, the manager of the Mets, Buck Showalter, came out very upset to argue with the members of the Nationals and the main umpire, in that Cishek wanted to throw Showalter on top of him and the Nats catcher, Keibert Ruiz, stopped him.

At that moment, the pews cleared and Lindor stood up. The bullpens were also empty; Ruíz, Juan Soto, Dee-Strange Gordon, all from the Nationals, went with Lindor to ask him how he was doing, while Pete Alonso, from the Mets, was one of the most furious, because he was waiting his turn and being in the waiting circle he was the one who of course he saw the ball to Lindor.

‘Mr. Smile’ had to leave the game and was replaced by the Venezuelan, Luis Guillorme. Note that reliever Cishek was ejected by head umpire Mark Carlston for his unsportsmanlike conduct. So far, the score is 4-3 for the Mets in the top of the sixth inning.

I was born in Mazatlán, Sinaloa and started in the world of sports journalism in 2004 in the newspaper El Sol de Mazatlán, where I was a baseball columnist and a reporter at the same time. In January 2009 I arrived at El Debate as a journalist reporter and it was almost six years (in the first stage), until in November 2014 I emigrated to the radio providing my services at Línea Directa-Grupo RSN. My cycle there ended in July 2019 and a few days later, El Debate gave me another opportunity to work and opened the doors for me again. This is how I came to Al Bat, where I have been since 2019 as a web journalist.
