The playoffs are fun, right? In the heat of battle between the Dodgers and Padres, tempers flared for truly trivial reasons. On-field celebrations.
In the top of the 6th inning, former Dodger and general crybaby Manny Machado launched a home run off of Clayton Kershaw. Before leaving the batter’s box, he launched his bat almost as far as the ball in celebration, calling out to his dugout “let’s go!”
Flash forward to the 7th inning, in a key moment, Brusdar Graterol was brought in to face superstar shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr which lead to the play of the postseason so far.

In an undoubtedly huge momentum-shifting moment, Machado took exception to Graterol’s celebration of the homer robbing catch.
Now, to break it down in the way only he can, internet sensation Jimmy “Jomboy” O’Brien answered the far-reaching call online. Keep in mind it’s a bit NSFW.

The Dodgers went on to win the ballgame (barely) by a final of 6-5.
