Jenks sailed a fastball in back of Ian Kinsler of the Texas Rangers on Saturday. Jenks later said the pitch was intentional because he was tired of watching White Sox batters getting hit with no retaliation.
"What's done is done," Jenks said. "Hopefully after today, we can get by this and go play some baseball."
During an interview on Sunday, the White Sox hurler said, "I'll not do it again," Jenks said. "But again, I wasn't trying to hit him. If they'll investigate that, they'll see that. It wasn't a dirty pitch. It wasn't up. It was right at his butt."
