San Diego Padres slugger Manny Machado took out his anger on a water cooler in the dugout during a game against the Milwaukee Brewers.
San Diego gave up 7 runs in the bottom of the 6th inning and turned around 4-9. It was because of the ‘fire show’ of the relief pitchers.
San Diego got 2 points at the beginning of the 7th inning and chased it to 9-6. The chances of 1st and 3rd base continued. Machado came to bat after Juan Soto was out on a fly ball to shortstop. One big shot could have tied the score. However, Machado was limited to a floating ball by first baseman.
Machado was angry with himself and relieved his frustration by hitting the water cooler in the dugout several times with a bat.온라인카지노
Machado is sluggish with a batting average in the early 20% range in August. He also has a season batting average of just 0.250.
San Diego could no longer pursue and was swept away 6-10.
After the match, Machado told reporters, “I want to win. I pity the water cooler.”
San Diego, with 30 games left, is 61-71, making it virtually impossible to stand on the fall baseball stage.
Meanwhile, San Diego coach Bob Melvin said, “My contract is until next year. I will continue to coach next season.”
