Buck Showalter Can't Wait For Your Home Run Trot To Pull His Pitcher

Buck Showalter wanted to get Kevin Gausman out of the game. And fast.

With two outs in the fifth inning, Gausman, the Orioles starting pitcher, had allowed a three-run home run to Red Sox shortstop Xander Bogaerts to make the score 6-0 Boston, and Showalter had seen enough. The Baltimore manager was so anxious to pull his starter from the game that he cut right in front of Bogaerts during his home-run trot and headed to the mound before the batter even touched home plate.
