Padres second baseman Ian Kinsler hit a three-run home run in the sixth inning to help the team defeat the Pirates yesterday. The hit wasn't whatr caught all the attention...It was what Kinsler did as he touched home plate that did.
As he reached home, Kinsler appeared to yell “f--- all you.”
It appeared he was directing the expletive toward the home crowd at Petco Park, but he explained later that wasn’t the case.
“I'm trying to get my guys fired up...I'm a passionate player, it's a big moment, I'm trying to get my guys going. We have all kinds of inside jokes and stuff that we have,” Kinsler told reporters after the game, according to MLB.com. “We're together every day, and we've been together for three months. I'm trying to get my guys going.”
