Phillies Protest Montreal Game
PHILADELPHIA (AP) _ The Philadelphia Phillies protested Friday night’s game against Montreal because Vladimir Guerrero was not ejected after attempting to charge the mound.
With a runner on first and one out in the first, Phillies starter Nelson Figueroa hit Guerrero in the left shoulder with a first-pitch fastball.
Guerrero shouted out at Figueroa, who appeared to motion for Guerrero to take first base. Guerrero then charged the mound but was stopped by home plate umpire Chris Guccione and Phillies catcher Todd Pratt. Both benches and bullpens emptied.
After calm was restored, Phillies manager Larry Bowa argued vehemently with all four umpires before protesting the game.
