ron is considered too passive by man brewers fans so this outburst is surprising.
“Roenicke was ejected by home-plate umpire Mark Ripperger in the aftermath of the game-tying home run hit by Padres catcher Rene Rivera off Francisco Rodriguez in the ninth.
The homer came on just the third pitch thrown by Rodriguez, who fell behind Rivera, 2-0. Rodriguez eventually got out of that ninth, but it was a tough pill to swallow for a Brewers team that fought to take a 2-0 lead in the seventh only to eventually give it back late.
Rivera then beat the Brewers with a walk-off single off Zach Duke in the 10th.
Asked about Ripperger in the minutes following the loss, Roenicke didn’t hold back. Ripperger, as it turns out, was behind the plate for one previous Brewers game this season, a 5-2 victory over the New York Mets at Miller Park on July
“This is the thing that bothers me: this is the same umpire that we had before, and he is terrible behind home plate,” he said. “He calls pitches that aren’t even close. The catcher sets up six inches off the plate and he calls them strikes. I should have been kicked out the last time that we saw him. He was behind the plate,
“I’m tired of sitting here watching the catcher set up off the plate and hitting his glove and (the umpire) calling it a strike. They’re balls. So Frankie misses, OK, it’s off the plate this much, the first one he calls a ball. He’s been calling it all night. The next one was a little further off, but he’s been calling that also. Just call the same pitches, but they’re balls.
“I should have been kicked out in probably the second inning today. It’s the same guy.”
(i appreciate all the tips on how to distinguish my comments from the article but i confess that is too complicated for me. sorry. i don’t understand why the old way had to go away. that was very straightforward and worked. this is just beyond me)
