New York Yankees first baseman Anthony Rizzo went bats**t crazy after an inside slider from Tampa Bay’s Ryan Yarbrough hit him on the thigh, and the ump kept him at home.
Rather than proceeding to first, home plate umpire D.J. Reyburn kept Rizzo in the batter’s box, claiming Rizzo did not try to evade the pitch.
Rizzo eventually struck out and was visibly pissed by what he believed was an error from Reyburn.
New York (72-44) was shut out for the second straight day, losing 4-0, to the Rays on Monday.

Dude clearly leaned into the pitch with his leg. Of course the homer-ass YES team calling the game thought it was a bad call but if you look at it objectively he leans in a the last second.
