Miguel Montero blames Jake Arrieta for Nationals’ seven stolen bases

The Cubs allowed a Nationals record seven stolen bases in Tuesday’s 6-1 lo s. While the catcher usually gets stuck with the blame, Miguel Montero pointed his finger in another direction.Montero, filling in for starting catcher Willson Contreras, blamed starting pitcher Jake Arrieta for Washington’s seemingly unchecked running."It really sucked because the stolen bases go to me, and when you really look at it, the pitcher doesn’ James McCann Jersey t give me any time," Monterotold reporters after the game. “So it’s just like, `Yeah ok Miggy can’t throw nobody out,’ but my pitcher doesn’t hold anybody on."That’s the reason why they were running left and right today because they know he was slow to the plate. Simple as that. It’s a shame that it’s my fault because I didn https://www.tigersedges.com/detroit-tigers/miguel-cabrera-jersey ‘t throw anybody out."Trea Turner did most of the damage on the base paths, tying his ownteam record with four steals. Michael A. Taylor added two of his own, and Anthony Rendon had one.Arrieta, who was chased after allowing six runs (five earned) in four innings, clearly drew the ire of Montero."It was a couple times I didn’t even try to throw because it was no time, it was no chance to throw nobody (out) there, so why am I even going to make a throw?" Montero said. Al Kaline Jersey “It really hurt me. He hurt me. I feel like I can still throw, like I got a good arm, my arm feel great. I just try to be quicker, I try to be perfect and to make those two together, it’s hard to do."Montero shouldn’t feel too bad. Washington runs all over the place most nights. Turner already has 32 free bases, and Taylor has nine, six of which have come in June.Arrieta and Montero will likely have to team up together again in another start this season, so they better make up quickly. This is not a good look for the defending World Series champions.
