Mark Canha’s wife Marci wasn’t happy after the Mets outfielder was hit in the ribs by a 98-mph Jordan Hicks pitch in Wednesday’s 11-4 win over the Cardinals.
Shortly after Canha was visibly upset about being drilled down in the third, his wife took to Twitter to share a GIF from the TV show Friends that showed Rachel Green (played by Jennifer Aniston) pumping her fists, while being restrained by Ross Gellar (David Schwimmer).
Mets fans backed Marci’s tweet and took to Twitter to express their own frustration at seeing New York players hit by pitches this season — Pete Alonso, Francisco Lindor and Starling Marte all rank in the top 10 in MLB when it comes to it to get hit this season. Canha, meanwhile, was in charge of the American League lead after being hit by pitches last year.
Back then, Canha became the second Mets player to be hit by a pitch on Wednesday. Max Scherzer was also plunked.
Mets manager Buck Showalter was visibly angry about the field and walked onto the field where he spoke to the umpire. After that, both benches received warnings from the referee.
The Mets and Cardinals have a bumpy history, following a bank clearing incident earlier this year in series one in St. Louis.
The Mets end their three-game series against the Cardinals Thursday afternoon before heading to Colorado for a three-game series against the Rockies starting Friday.
