Pittsburgh Pirates right fielder Garrett Jones was trying to make a play on a Carlos Pena blast to the wall on Sunday, but a cup of barley and malted hops got in his way:
The blast from Pena got away from Jones and allowed the Cubs to tie the game 2-2 on a two-run double. While the tendency may be to blame the Cubs fan for intentionally pouring it on Jones, which is something we’ve actually seen Cubs fans do before, it looked like the fan was just trying to catch a home run ball and lost the handle on his beer. And if you still really think the action was intentional, allow me to refer you to the scoreboard where the Pirates won 5-4. Ball don’t lie.
Jones was actually a good sport about the whole thing, saying after the game he got a little in the eye and a little in the mouth and that it tasted like Miller Lite. Should we expect anything less from Cubs fans?
