Yost recalls walk-off of a different kind
KANSAS CITY -- Retaliation by pitchers to make amends for teammates being hit by a pitch was common years ago, but the practice has been reduced in recent years by the threat of ejections and fines.

Royals manager Ned Yost was reminded of an incident when Atlanta third baseman Terry Pendleton walked off the field when he felt Braves pitcher Marvin Freeman did not properly retaliate. Yost was a Braves coach at the time and recalled that Pendleton went in the clubhouse, took a shower and went home.

"Marvin had a great line after that, too," Yost said. "They asked, 'What'd you think when Terry was walking off?' And Marvin said, 'I thought that Terry thought I was pitching so good I only needed seven guys out there.' "
