Scioscia has discussion with MLB

Manager Mike Scioscia said he talked to general manager Bill Stoneman and baseball’s vice president of discipline Bob Watson after Sunday’s game to talk about Hector Carrasco’s ejection.
Carrasco was thrown out after grazing Ian Kinsler’s batting helmet on a 78 mph breaking ball. It came immediately after Gary Matthews Jr. was hit on the rear end in his first at-bat after hitting his second home run of Sunday’s game.
I fully support Major League Baseball with what theyre doing as far as trying to curtail beanballs and bench-clearing brawls, Scioscia said. But I think the calls that are made on the field, there needs to be common sense infused with them. When a guy gets hit with an off speed pitch, I dont care where it hits him. I dont think theres any way you find intent with it.
Scioscia admits nothing can be done about Sunday’s game that ended in a 7-6 Angels defeat, but hopes that by having an open-line of communication with the league, it will established better guidelines for dealing with similar situations in the future.
