Dodgers take issue with Hector Neris staring into dugout after save

Hector Neris

Several members of the Los Angeles Dodgers took issue with Hector Neris’ behavior after the Philadelphia Phillies won Thursday’s game 7-6 to earn a split in their four-game series.

Neris, who blew a save in the Phillies’ win on Tuesday night, entered the ninth with a 7-5 lead. He allowed a two-out home run to Alex Verdugo but got Justin Turner to fly out to end the game.

According to Dodger Talk host David Vassegh, Neris stared into the Dodgers’ dugout after the final out.

You can see the Dodgers’ reaction to Neris:

Neris said after the game that his emotions got the best of him.

Neris received a three-game suspension for hitting David Freese with a pitch on Tuesday night, seemingly because he was upset about surrendering a home run to Matt Beaty. His attitude with the Dodgers likely has to do with LA consistently owning him at the plate in his career.
