Kansas City Royals pitcher Jeremy Guthrie took to twitter to apologize for a t-shirt he wore to a post game press conference after defeating the Baltimore Orioles in Game 3 of the American League Championship Series.
Guthrie who pitched for the Orioles from 2007 to 2011 wore a shirt that read “These O’s ain’t Royal.”

“My positive feelings for the Charm City, O’s organization, my former teammates and O’s fans is well documented,” Guthrie tweeted later in a tweet that has since been deleted via the Baltimore Sun. “Nothing I wore [Tuesday night] changes that.”
Guthrie pitched five innings allowing one run and three hits in Tuesday’s game before giving way to the Royals bullpen. The Royals can close out the series with a win on Wednesday afternoon.
