Dodgers | Penny throws fit after being pulled in fifth inning

The Orange County Register's Bill Plunkett reports Los Angeles Dodgers SP Brad Penny threw a fit when Dodgers manager Grady Little removed him from the team's game Monday, May 29, with one out in the fifth inning. Penny allowed an 8-1 lead to shrink considerably after giving up six straight hits in the inning. "I just don't appreciate, with a three-run lead, not getting the chance to get that inning out of the way," said Penny, who gestured and yelled while heading back to the dugout, slammed a bat near the dugout steps, and then continued to shout towards the direction of the pitcher's mound, where Little was giving the ball to the new pitcher. Little said the team would address Penny's behavior after being pulled. "I don't mind him being ticked off when he comes out of a game," said Dodgers pitching coach Rick Honeycutt. "But the tirade after it, that's a different issue."
