Lance McCullers was so pumped for Yordan Alvarez’s huge home run
Yordan Alvarez blasted a huge home run on Tuesday night, and Lance McCullers loved it.
Alvarez broke open a 1-0 game with a huge 2-run home run for his Houston Astros against the Los Angeles Dodgers in the top of the eighth inning. The clean-up hitter admired his work after the home run, and the dinger left his teammates fire dup.
A replay aired by Spectrum SportsNet LA showed McCullers yelling “let’s f—ing go!” after the big hit.
The home run helped give the Astros a cushion in their 3-0 win. It also helped McCullers get the victory in the outing.
NOTE: A previous version of the story misinterpreted McCullers’ reaction and accused him of being upset with Alvarez. Larry Brown Sports apologizes to McCullers and the Astros for the error and poor judgment.
Here are McCullers’ words about his reaction:
It doesn’t really matter lol. Everyone knows I was excited about this and I would never 1) yell at my teammate but 2) be mad for hitting/admiring that HUGE hr. right there! I scream “LETS FOOOOKIN GO” and was very excited lol
