8/12 Sorry, Shane
Lou Piniella apologized Wednesday night to Shane Victorino and the Phillies for a fan who doused the center fielder with a beer as he caught Jake Fox’s sacrifice fly in the fifth. Left fielder Raul Ibanez pointed to the culprit after the incident, and a fan was ushered out of the ballpark.
“That shouldn’t happen,” Piniella said. “It’s not good sportsmanship and it’s not good behavior. We apologize to Victorino and the Phillies for that.”
Alfonso Soriano hoped the Phillies didn’t retaliate the next time he’s at Citizen’s Bank Park.
“If I play in Philadelphia and some fan does that to me, I’m not going to be happy,” Soriano said.
