Triple-A Hitter Gets Revenge On Pitcher In Epic At-Bat

In a Triple-A game between the Iowa Cubs and the Indiana Indians, two former Major Leaguers were facing each other in the bottom of the fourth inning. On the mound was Wily Peralta, a 10-year MLB veteran pitcher, who is most known for being a starter for the Milwaukee Brewers (2012-2017). Then in the batter's box was Pete Crow-Armstrong, who was the Chicago Cubs first-overall pick in the 2020 MLB Draft.

Peralta may have some unknown history with Crow-Armstrong, as in the first pitch of the plate appearance, he threw at the back of the Cubs prospect.

The announcer stated, "He threw about five feet behind him."

In case you thought it just slipped out of his hands, the next pitch then nearly missed hitting Crow-Armstrong in the head.

The Triple-A announcer then sarcastically remarked, "You have to warn him... I'm sure the 10-year big leaguer just lost his control two pitches in a row to Pete Crow-Armstrong successively like that."

Iowa's head coach, Marty Pevey, came out to argue with the umpire, but it went through one ear out the other, and the manager was tossed out of the game.

With the count 2-0, Crow-Armstrong, knowing that Peralta is probably smart enough not to try any of those shenanigans again, waited for the third pitch of the at-bat to seek his vengeance. And as if it was scripted out of a movie, he did just that, crushing a long ball that was hit out of the park, which was followed by a bat spike/flip to top off the sweet payback home run, as you can hear on the call.

"Swing and a drive to right field, way back, bye-bye... bye-bye with the much deserved bat flip, Wily Peralta won the battle, Pete Crow-Armstrong won the war."

Crow-Armstrong has 55 at-bats in the majors this season (.236 average), but has been bounced around the Chicago Cubs farm system. In his recent return to the minors, the 22-year-old known as "PCA" has been on fire, as he is batting .526, with 8 runs, 7 RBI's, and 3 stolen bases through his first four games back in Triple-A.

The center fielder ended the game 4-for-5 with a HR, three doubles, 4 runs, 4 RBI's, as Iowa defeated Indiana 12-0.
