Madison Bumgarner yells at Max Muncy after homer




 

Dodgers first baseman Max Muncy wasted little time putting his team on the board against Madison Bumgarner and the Giants. After Kiké Hernández flied out, Muncy drilled a 2-1, 92 MPH fastball into McCovey Cove for a solo homer. According to Statcast, it left the bat at about 109 MPH and traveled 426 feet.


Muncy, as you can see, admired his handiwork just for a bit. We've certainly seen much longer and flashier home run trots.
