"It was just a little bit of a liberal strike zone for me," Jennings said. "I felt like he was expanding down below. We had a difference of opinion, I expressed it, and he did what he had to do and ran me. So that's over, and we'll be back tomorrow. Hopefully our mindset and at-bats will pick up."

Dietrich went on to fly out to center field to end the inning.
