Cole Hamels admits to intentionally hitting Bryce Harper

Cole Hamels admits to intentionally hitting Bryce Harper

Yep, this is a rivalry. Get on board.

After losing two straight games to the Washington Nationals this weekend, Philadelphia Phillies pitcher Cole Hamels had seen enough. Hamels took matters in to his own hands by sending a deliberate message to the NL East leading Nationals that the Phillies had enough. With two outs in the first inning and nobody on, Hamels pegged brazen rookie Bryce Harper in the backside with a fastball on his first pitch to the kid. Harper took first base without issue, but would later make Hamels pay for the incident.

“I was trying to hit him,” Hamels said [via Washington Post]. “I’m not going to deny it. That’s just — you know what, it’s something that I grew up watching, that’s what happened, so I’m just trying to continue the old baseball — I think some people kind of get away from it. I remember when I was a rookie the strike zone was really, really small and you didn’t say anything just because that’s the way baseball is. Sometimes the league is protecting certain players and making it not that old-school, prestigious way of baseball.”
