Kyle prodded Bregman and Koreya’s head in the sixth inning. He threw for Bregman to follow and his pitch to Coria was over his head.
On the outside looking in, the pitch directed towards Bregman and Corey appeared to be an altered measure against the Astros for cheating during the 2017 season.
An investigation by MLB earlier in the year revealed a detailed plan set up by the Astros to steal players with signs and warnings when a broken ball was coming.

However, Kelly denied that he intentionally threw the Astros’ head.
“No. When I was with the Red Sox, we beat them in ’18.” “That’s one of the things I pitch competitively. There’s no fan here, some stuff (from the opposing dugout ) It’s easy to hear … something they apparently don’t take too much. “
Dodgers manager Dave Roberts was also unsure.

Astro’s manager Dusty Baker said Kelly was ripping Correa but nothing was said to provoke the pitcher.
“What really annoyed everyone … when he told her: ‘Nice swing b — h'” Baker said. “What are you going to do then?”
Baker said: “We didn’t say anything. We start with nothing. But we don’t take anything.
