Red Sox-White Sox delayed by 3 bottles thrown towards the sector

Red Sox

CHICAGO (AP) — There was a delay within the fourth inning of the Boston Red Sox's game against the Chicago White Sox on Friday night after three small bottles were thrown toward the sector.

A White Sox spokesman described the bottles as “travel-sized” plastic bottles. The team said it was investigating the incident but there have been no injuries.

The delay occurred before Paul DeJong was at bat with runners on first and second base and one out within the fourth inning.

DeJong said throughout the White Sox televised broadcast that they were “throwing full bottles of alcohol through the air.” He said a toddler within the front row was hit in the pinnacle and had to depart the stadium.

Chicago ended a 14-game losing streak with a 7-2 win over Boston.

After the win, White Sox first baseman Andrew Vaughn said he heard a toddler had been hit.

“I don't know when that happened,” Vaughn said. “I was on deck, (Gavin Sheets) was up there and I heard a loud bang. When I looked down, there was a little shot glass or something right in front of me.”

White Sox manager Pedro Grifol praised the response of stadium security.

“I really don't know where they came from,” Grifol said. “One landed near me and even closer to some fans there. The most important thing is that we notified security and they took care of it. We had no further problems.”
