Given the history over the past two days it's not surprising that Porcello was tossed (he threw at Victor in the first and they had a 3 run lead), though if you're watching on NESN, Eckersely (finally) makes some good points about how he doesn't think the bean was intentional.
Watch the Youtube video above...unless your a biased Sox fan, Youks hands got nowhere even close to Porcello's face...he actually had him wrapped up in a football-like tackle, and still got tossed down.
How can you say Porcello "threw at Victor?" He threw it inside, and MISSED him.
Given the history over the past 2 days, Tazawa should also have been tossed then when the Tigers best hitter was hit for the 2nd consecutive day.
Tigers got the short end in the jobbing.
