After homer and HBP, warnings issued in NLCS Game 1

The NLCS umpiring crew had obviously gotten the memo: the Cardinals and Brewers just don’t like each other very much.

Prince Fielder was plunked by Jaime Garcia‘s very first pitch after Ryan Braun‘s two-run homer in the first inning Sunday, leading to warnings being issued in Game 1.

Garcia’s pitch wasn’t necessarily intentional — he got Fielder on the arm — but since the teams have a history and have done some jawing these last two days, home-plate umpire and crew chief Gary Darling decided on the preemptive course of action.

The Cards took a 1-0 lead on Zack Greinke in the top of the first before Braun responded in the bottom of the inning, making it 2-1 Milwaukee.

    “Garcia’s pitch wasn’t NECESSARILY intentional”? The kid had zero control through the first half-dozen batters of the inning; that pitch was probably supposed to be low and away. Both managers looked rightfully incredulous when the warning was issued.

    Will TLR pull off his first double switch before the 6th inning?

      I don’t know if that was an insult. It’s a fair question and in now way ridiculing LaRussa’s aptitude.

      It’s more fun to make fun of the people involved in the game than it is to actually be a fan of the game itself.

    I don’t like how the Brewers act. Not at all. I’m sure some will say, “Oh, they are just excited”…but that doesn’t jive with me. They prancing and pointing…don’t like it.

    Brewers act like they have never won before with this immature celebrating. Remember how the phillies pounded the cards in game 1? Phillies didnt go nuts theyknew it was only game 1

      The Phillies won a world series as well as the Cards in the last decade, the Detriot Lions are doing good for the first time in a 30 some years its ok for fans to believe in it, the Crew and thier fans should be able to enjoy it too.

    funny how fielder did rush the mound or the brewers bench did not start yelling at cards after he was hit. oh wait only the whiny bitches do that because their guys would never throw inside or intentionally hit anyone right?

    Reds fan huh? Pretty sure no one on the Cardinals side said a word when A.P. was breezed two times his first time up. Enjoy watching the games Redlegs fan.
