Trevor Bauer calls out Avisail Garcia after in-game exchange
Cleveland Indians righty Trevor Bauer handed Chicago White Sox outfielder Avisail Garcia an L both on the field and in the press on Monday.
Bauer led the Indians to a 5-3 win over the White Sox. The game was highlighted by a fourth-inning episode where he exchanged words and taunts with Garcia during an at-bat before striking him out and telling Garcia to sit down.

Bauer explained the incident to reporters after the game, saying the feud was over the pitches he was throwing to Garcia. Bauer called out the Venezuelan for running his mouth and apparently not knowing the rules of baseball.

There were no real playoff implications to this game — the Indians have all but clinched the AL Central, while the White Sox currently sit in last place in the division — so just chalk this up to another great troll job by Bauer.
