China and the US have fiery clash in the baseball

In a fiery game between China and the United States in the baseball, the Chinese manager, James Lefebvre and relief pitcher Chen Kun were ejected from the game.

The Chinese catcher was also injured in the heated game. America won 9-1.

“We not only lost the game but we may have also lost our catcher Wang Wei for the rest of the Olympics. He got hit in the leg. They play hard and we play hard,” said Lefebvre who was furious with Schierholtz.

“If you have a guy at homeplate, you never come up and try to hit the guy in the chest. I felt that was an illegal slide and the umpire should have ejected him. After that the game got out of hand.”

Japan next plays Taiwan and China takes on Japan.
