Max Muncy shares what he said to set Madison Bumgarner off
Los Angeles Dodgers slugger Max Muncy exchanged words with San Francisco Giants pitcher Madison Bumgarner after a homer on Sunday, and now we know what was said.
Bumgarner seemed to take offense to Muncy flipping his bat and watching his home run fly into McCovey Cove during the Dodgers’ 1-0 victory. The two jawed as Muncy rounded the bases, and the home plate umpire had to step in.
Muncy said after the game that Bumgarner became upset after being on the receiving end of a pretty savage quote.
Muncy: “Bumgarner said ‘don’t watch the ball, run’, and I just told him if he doesn’t want me to watch the ball, go get it out of the ocean.”

Last time Bumgarner didn’t like a bat flip, he pretty effectively got the last word. Not so much this time. That’s a pretty comprehensive burn from Muncy. He won the exchange, and the Dodgers won the game.
