Max Muncy beats Madison Bumgarner at the plate and in his postgame quotes
Muncy's home run led to an exchange and possibly the quote of the year
The Dodgers beat the Giants in San Francisco Sunday afternoon in a fast, 1-0 game. Both pitchers were brilliant, with the only blemish being Max Muncy taking Madison Bumgarner deep in the first inning. Given that it was a long home run where the batter watched it for a quick second or two and that it was the overly intense Bumgarner, the tempers flaring part wasn't all too surprising:
That wasn't even really an egregious look by Muncy, but, as noted, it's Bumgarner. As he says after the game, that's just how he is:
I would say something like "fair enough," but there's a gap there. He's saying to let him be and I agree with that, but he's not letting Muncy be himself. He didn't let Muncy do his thing. He threw a temper tantrum about it. There's a level of hypocrisy in that.
Regardless, Muncy beat him on the field and destroyed him with this interview:
For those who don't want to watch and listen, here's the winning quote:
"He yelled at me, he said 'don't watch the ball, you run.' I just responded back, 'if you don't want me to watch the ball, you can go get it out of the ocean.'"
As always, if you, a major-league pitcher, don't want to see how a player reacts to hitting a home run, don't give up a home run.
