Watch: Yasiel Puig unleashes epic bat flip after homering off old rival
Yasiel Puig and Madison Bumgarner have a long, checkered history with each other, and that carried on Sunday with Puig getting a personal victory.
Puig, now with the Cincinnati Reds, unleashed an epic bat flip after taking Bumgarner deep in Sunday’s matchup.

There was definitely a little bit more than usual behind this one for Puig. He and Bumgarner have long antagonized each other dating back to Puig’s time with the San Francisco Giants, with Bumgarner not a fan of the outfielder’s eccentric, emotional style of play. The Giants ace probably won’t think much of Puig’s bat flip on Sunday, either, but they might not get the chance to see each other again.
