Royals manager Ned Yost: We had no animosity toward Tim Anderson
Tim Anderson didn’t write a single word in a tweet Wednesday night, but the message was clear.
Anderson, the White Sox shortstop, was hit by a pitch during Chicago’s 8-7 win over the Royals. It came a month after he was beaned following an epic bat flip in a game against the Royals at Guaranteed Rate Field.
On Wednesday, Anderson was hit in the helmet with a pitch from Royals starter Glenn Sparkman in the second inning. Sparkman was ejected and the White Sox soon jumped to a 7-1 lead. The Royals battled back to tie the game in the eighth inning, but the White Sox won on Anderson’s RBI double and finished a three-game sweep.
Guess what emoji Anderson used? A broom. Oh, and he added a photo of the infamous bat flip.
White Sox fans (unsurprisingly) loved it:
