Clayton Kershaw: Madison Bumgarner was ‘asking for it’ with Yasiel Puig

Yasiel Puig Madison Bumgarner

Madison Bumgarner and Yasiel Puig got into it once again on Monday night, and Clayton Kershaw feels the San Francisco Giants ace is the one to blame for the latest confrontation between the two.

After Puig hit a weak grounder to end the seventh inning of the Los Angeles Dodgers’ 2-1 win over the Giants, Bumgarner was very animated in celebrating the out. He yelled “f– yeah!” and stared in Puig’s direction, which is why Kershaw thought Bumgarner was the antagonist.

In Bumgarner’s defense, the out preserved a 1-0 lead after seven. He had every right to be excited, and you can see a video of his reaction here.

Having said that, there is a lot of bad blood between Puig and Bumgarner, which is likely why MadBum was excited about retiring the outfielder in a crucial situation. He was probably trying to get a rise out of Puig, and it worked.
