Hanley accused of peeking back at Braves' Ross
ATLANTA -- During his 11th-inning at-bat that ended in a single Friday night, Dodgers shortstop Hanley Ramirez and Braves catcher David Ross had a brief but serious discussion at the plate.

Ross accused Ramirez of sneaking a peek at the catcher's positioning before a pitch. Ramirez said he was just adjusting his position in the batter's box. Ross told Ramirez not to do it again.

"I thought that's what that was about," Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said. "You can feel a guy moving back there. Sometimes they are heavy-footed late in a game. Sometimes you can catch it out of the corner of your eye. And usually, if the guy gives you the location, he gives you the pitch."
