Donald Trump criticizes Dodgers manager Dave Roberts for bullpen moves in World Series loss

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts is facing plenty of questions for the moves he made in the late innings of a 9-6 loss against the Red Sox in Game 4 of the World Series.

President Donald Trump became one one of Roberts' critics on Saturday night.

The Dodgers jumped out to a 4-0 lead in the sixth inning, but the Red Sox battled back to tie it in the eighth. Boston would score five in the top of the ninth to go ahead. After Los Angeles had surrendered the lead, Trump tweeted:

"It is amazing how a manager takes out a pitcher who is loose & dominating through almost 7 innings, Rich Hill of Dodgers, and brings in nervous reliever(s) who get shellacked. 4 run lead gone. Managers do it all the time, big mistake!"

Roberts pulled starter Rich Hill with a runner on first and one out in the sixth inning, still holding a 4-0 lead. Scott Alexander walked the next batter before giving way to Ryan Madson. Madson got the second out, but then surrendered a three-run homer to Mitch Moreland to cut the lead to 4-3.

Though he hasn't engaged as much since his political career began in 2015, Trump has a long history of tweeting sports takes.
