Last night, the Nationals were able to force a Game 7 in the World Series against the Astros in Houston. They came out on top 7-2 but there was some controversy in the game in the seventh inning.
The Nats’ Trea Turner hit a ground ball where he started running towards first base but was ruled out after not running within the baseline. Justin Verlander was pitching for Houston and his wife, super model Kate Upton, was at Minute Maid Park and she thought the call was 100% correct. She said Turner wasn’t in the base path and he has to run in between the two lines. This was after a very long review by the umpires.
After Upton’s take on the play, she was met by haters in her Twitter mentions with some misogynistic comments. She soon took to her Twitter to address these people.
“I LOVE talking about sports and reading all of the dumb misogynist comments. It reminds me that women need to keep fighting for equality. It’s 2019 but feels like the 1950s. #feminist”
Despite the ruling, many fans did think that Turner was safe and that it was a game-changing call. It got heated to the point where Nats Manager Dave Martinez had to be held back from getting in the umps’ faces as he was ejected in the middle of the seventh inning stretch.
Game 7 is tonight in Houston. None of the home teams in this World Series has yet to win a game. Flip the pages for Upton’s tweets along with video of the Turner play.
