The New York Yankees beat the Houston Astros Tuesday night, 4-0, as Astros closer, Ken Giles, gave up a 3 run home run to Gary Sanchez in the top of the ninth inning in a scoreless game. To “figuratively” say that Giles “took one on the chin” would be quite an understatement as he “literally” did “take one on the chin.”
After the home run, Astros Manager, A.J. Hinch, proceeded to remove Giles from the game. As Giles headed towards the dugout, he actually punched himself in the chin!
Later, Giles stated that he was frustrated because he “screwed up” and “didn’t give our team a chance” to win. Well, if he was only frustrated, I would hate to see what he would do to himself if he was really mad!
