Manny Machado lost his freakin’ mind on the diamond Wednesday night — going on an F-bomb-laced tirade … and it’s all ’cause a Dodgers pitcher celebrated a great defensive play.
Here’s the deal … in the 7th inning of Game 2 of San Diego’s playoff series with L.A. — Brusdar Graterol took the mound to try to help close things out for the Dodgers.
The problem? He let a fastball out over the middle of the plate that Fernando Tatis Jr. CRUSHED — and it looked like a no-doubter, 2-run bomb that would give the Pads a 5-4 lead.
But, centerfielder Cody Bellinger saved the day … robbing the HR with ease — and Graterol went NUTS!!!
Brusdar threw his glove with joy, then tossed his hat, then fist-pumped … and Machado (who had bat flipped the hell out of a homer earlier in the game) hated ALL. OF. IT.
The former Dodger melted down on the diamond, telling Graterol “F*ck you!” repeatedly, before adding, “I’ll be waiting for you!”
Graterol soaked in the trash talk … blowing the guy a kiss — while the rest of his Dodgers teammates told Machado to sit down.
The next inning, Graterol went on to get Machado to ground out … and the Dodgers eventually sweated out a 6-5 win to take a commanding 2-0 series lead.
Game 3 is set for Wednesday night … getcha popcorn ready!
