Watch: Madison Bumgarner irate at Max Muncy for pimping home run
Max Muncy hit a towering home run off of Madison Bumgarner in the first inning of Sunday’s game between the Los Angeles Dodgers and San Francisco Giants, and let’s just say the left-hander did not appreciate the way Muncy admired the feat.
With two out and nobody on, Muncy launched a 426-foot shot into McCovey Cove. He then flipped his bat and began slowly walking to first base, which drew an angry reaction from Bumgarner. The home plate umpire needed to step in.

This isn’t the first time Bumgarner has been bothered by a bat flip, so we’re not surprised. Some will say Muncy’s antics were classless, but the only sure-fire way to prevent them is to not give up a moon shot at your home ballpark.
