Trailing the Oakland A’s 7-4 Tuesday night, the Kansas City Royals brought in left-hander Jake Brentz to pitch the sixth inning.
Brentz, who was celebrating his 27th birthday, got off to a strong start, opening the inning by getting A’s batter Starling Marte to swing and miss at the first pitch. But his second pitch – well that one was juuuuuust a bit outside. Technically it was inside on the righty hitter, but regardless, it wasn’t what the Royals catcher called for.
