Trea Turner had perfect reaction to home run while mic’d up

Trea Turner home run reaction

MLB players are increasingly being mic’d up and interviewed during nationally televised games, which has given rise to awkward moments where they have to watch and react as something bad happens to their team.

That is what happened to Trea Turner on “Sunday Night Baseball.” The new Phillies shortstop was speaking to the ESPN broadcast when Texas Rangers third baseman Josh Jung launched a solo home run to give his team the lead. Turner knew it immediately and kept his commentary simple: “Oh no.”

Turner was more chilled out than Dusty Baker was under a similar circumstance, but the stakes were definitely a bit lower here.

Turner has been watching a lot of runs score over the first few games of the season. Coming into Sunday, the Phillies had given up 27 runs in two games, so this was becoming distressingly common for him.
