LOS ANGELES (KRON) — The Los Angeles Dodgers did not waste any chance to take a jab at a team that is in shambles.
Adrian Gonzalez, the man who hit last night’s walk-off hit, posted a picture on Twitter Tuesday afternoon poking fun at San Francisco Giants ace Madison Bumgarner.
It all started when Bumgarner fielded a slow tapper by Puig along the first base line and threw him out to end the inning. The left-hander punched his glove emphatically and said something that didn’t appear very cordial.
“I didn’t hear what was going on,” Bumgarner said. “I just got him out and he tried to stare me down or something. That’s what it looked like to me.”
Puig glared back and responded, and soon both teams massed near first base before the dustup ended without any punches.
“He asked me, ‘Why you looking at me?’” Puig said through a translator. “I asked him why he was looking at me.”
In the second, Puig doubled for the lone hit given up by Bumgarner.
“Maybe because it was his only hit and he was angry,” Puig said. “Every time I face him it seems like we have those problems. We’re tired of it. It definitely motivates us and seems to have a distraction in their head.”
Gonzalez posted a photo with three of his teammates, all wearing a shirt with the saying, “Don’t look at me.” The hashtag #DontLookAtMe is now trending on Twitter.
It was a clear shot at Bumgarner, who shouted that at Yasiel Puig before both benches cleared at the end of the seventh inning.
Bumgarner allowed one hit over seven scoreless innings. He struck out 10, walked none and retired his final 10 batters.
The Giants lost the game 2-1, as San Francisco blew their 29th save of the season.
The Giants are now six games behind the Dodgers in the National League West.
