Dodgers starter's 'silent' screw you to Astros villain

Fans didn't stop booing until Gurriel ended his plate appearance by popping out to first baseman Cody Bellinger. Hill referred to the delay as "my silent gesture".

Gurriel landed in hot water when he appeared to be mocking Dodgers pitcher Yu Darvish, who is half Japanese, during Game 3 of the World Series.

Dodgers fans, irate over the race row, heaped abuse on Gurriel in both Game 6 and 7, after the series swung back to Los Angeles.

But instead of throwing a fastball at the Astros slugger, Hill stepped off the mound, allowing the Dodgers crowd longer to boo him during his first at-bat. And Rich Hill helped by stepping off the mound, kicking dirt off his cleats, and doing everything he possibly could to stall for time.

Yuli Gurriel reacts during the sixth inning of Game 6 of the World Series.

While pitchers have been known to take their time during the biggest games, that wasn't the case in this situation.

"That was my silent gesture", Hill said afterward (via the Los Angeles Times), explaining that he wanted to condemn Gurriel's pulling at the corners of his eyes after his Game 3 homer off Darvish, who is from Japan.

The crowd certainly got a chance to speak for itself. ". I didn't think anybody would think about what I meant [in that way]".

Gurriel apologized for his actions last week, while Darvish has maintained that he was not bothered by the taunt.

Hill also touched on the suspension, saying that if Gurriel had done those racists actions in "any other type of business", "you wouldn't have a job the next day". It was offensive for Yu Darvish, but he was able to turn the page right away.

Gurriel was suspended five games for his act, but not until the start of next season.
