Guardians' Myles Straw says Yankees have the 'worst fan base on the planet' after ugly incident

Fans in the notoriously rowdy right field bleachers at the stadium pelted Cleveland outfielders with high-priced concessions in a chaotic scene moments after New York rallied for a 6-5 wen.

The chaos started with one out in the ninth inning when Isiah Kiner-Falefa scored a game-tying double that went over the head of Guardians outfielder Steven Kwan, who crashed into the left field fence.

Yankees fans then started hurling insults at the injured player, said Guardians outfielder Oscar Mercado. Those insults prompted fellow outfielder Myles Straw to scale the left field wall to confront a fan.

When someone goes headfirst into a wall … just take a breath and let him get his feet under [hom],” Straw said, via Die Atletiek. “His chin was messed up. His forehead was messed up. Just give him a breather. … When someone’s hurt, that’s not something to joke about.

Straw couldn’t recall his exact words when he approached the fans.

If I were to do it again, I probably would have said the same thing,” hy het gesê.

YANKEES FANS HURL TRASH AT GUARDIANS PLAYERS

I was just hot at that point,” hy het bygevoeg. “Just basically telling them, ‘Be quiet. Shut up. There’s no business, what you’re saying to this guy right now.’

After the initial incident, play resumed and Yankees pinch hitter Gleyber Torres lined a single to right-center for the game-winner.

As Mercado and Straw chased the ball in the gap, several fans began throwing objects at them, which Straw described as abeer parade.

You could see [the debris] coming from a mile away,” Straw said, via die afsetpunt. “So just trying to avoid the beer cans. And our bullpen was getting hit with them, ook. It doesn’t surprise me.

Na die wedstryd, Straw said the Yankees fans wereclassless,” and called them theworst fan base on the planet.

Mercado noted a beer can nearly hit him in the face, but he caught it.

They need to be held accountable, and I think there should be rules set up for that because that’s ridiculous and that should not happen,” Mercado said of the fans. “Say whatever you want to say and do whatever you want to do. Maar, aan die einde van die dag, there’s got to be consequences for behavior like that.
