New York Mets pitcher Jordan Yamamoto is lashing out at fans for attacking his wife on Twitter over his poor performance against the Miami Marlins on Sunday.

‘I will address this once and once only,’ Yamamoto wrote in a statement on Twitter. ‘I know Twitter is sometimes not a very nice place and to some of you it may seem fun to troll people. But you don’t go and harass my WIFE!’

The 25-year-old Hawaii native allowed five runs in four innings during Sunday’s 5-1 loss in Miami. His wife Madison previously tweeted that she was traveling to Florida for the game prior to becoming a target for disgruntled fans on Sunday.

‘Havin (sic) fun watching him tank?’ asked one fan.

Much of the abuse has since been deleted, but Madison Yamamoto’s response is still on Twitter.  

‘Wow, from love to now hate so fast Mets fans,’ she tweeted. ‘As my phones blowing up with nasty tweets..I just want to remind you that we’re human. I am a WIFE, cheering on her husband. No matter the runs. Your passion for the game is great and all, but stay classy.’

To be fair, a number of Mets fans rushed to her defense on Twitter.

‘From one player family to another, don’t waste energy with the haters and keyboard warriors,’ wrote a man claiming to be the father of Mets infielder Luis Guillorme. ‘Keep supporting Jordan and showing your pride for him!’

Yamamoto, who married Madison in 2020, thanked the Mets fans who stuck up for his wife, but made it clear that all of his critics should direct their vitriol at him and not her. 

‘She isn’t the one playing the game nor wearing the uniform! If you should be trolling any one, it should be me,’ Yamamoto wrote. ‘Tag me and comment on my posts, it is my fault and my fault alone. I gave up those 5 runs. My own errors and lack of focus got away from me that inning. So don’t go and harass her! Because I understand as a professional athlete, that comes with the territory.

‘But our family and spouses did not sign up for that,’ he continued. ‘They don’t deserve that! No one deserves that. We preach love and compassion towards one another. So with all that being said, I truly appreciate the true fan base for sticking up for my wife when they seen those nasty tweets. So thank you! Also we are moving onward and upward! That game is in the past and it is time to move to today because we have a new series and a new day to get better and be better! Much Love #MetsTwitter’
