Max Muncy to Madison Bumgarner after splashing home run: ‘Get it out of the ocean’

Dodgers first baseman Max Muncy and Giants pitcher Madison Bumgarner exchanged some words and gestures in a bizarre scene during Sunday’s game at Oracle Park.

Muncy blasted a first-inning pitch from Bumgarner out of the stadium into McCovey Cove, then stood at home plate momentarily to admire it. That irked Bumgarner, who gestured for Muncy to start running.

As Muncy trotted around the bases, he and Bumgarner exchanged words and gestures. At one point, Muncy appeared to gesture in the direction of McCovey Cove. Home plate umpire Will Little stood with Bumgarner to prevent the situation from getting out of hand.

Plenty of fans watching on TV probably tried to read lips during the exchange, but Muncy later clarified the conversation.

“I hit the ball and then he yelled at me, he said, ‘Don’t watch the ball. You run,'” Muncy said. “And I just responded back, ‘if you don’t want me to watch the ball, go get it out of the ocean.'”

As it turned out, that was the only run of the game as the Dodgers held on to win, 1-0.
