Verlander On Ejection: Everyone Could Have Handled It Better

Tampa Bay Rays v Houston Astros

Houston Astros ace Justin Verlander believes his ejection could have been avoided if everyone behaved better. Verlander says he could have used better language when expressing his displeasure over a pitch last night against the Rays. The pitcher says home plate umpire Pat Hoberg could have deescalated the situation a bit more and thinks everyone overreacted. The Astros are back at Minute Maid Park tonight with Gerrit Cole on the mound against the Rays. First pitch is set for 7:10 p.m.
