Reds second baseman Brandon Phillips took to Twitter on Tuesday to accuse a Pittsburgh Pirates player of racism.


Phillips wrote the Tweet after the Reds 14 inning, 4-3 win on Monday night against the Pirates. He did not elaborate on which player he was referring to.

Phillips was hit by a pitch during the 8th inning by Jared Hughes. Phillips tossed the ball back towards the mound and Hughes shouted something at Phillips. The umpires warned both teams.
