The Dodgers players and coaches had a pretty rough night on Monday. Not only did they lose Game 1 of the National League Championship Series, but they had something of an outburst in the postgame press conference.
The question that got to Walker Buehler came because of the pants that he was wearing on the mound. Fans on social media had made reference to Buehler’s apparently very tight pants all game long. When asked about the pants by a Dodgers reporter, Buehler said it was not the right time or place, and proceeded to leave the interview session early.

As you can imagine, asking Buehler about his pants following a loss in a very important game does not go over well. Buehler did not return for questions and the video clip has already made its way around the internet. The Dodgers fell to the Braves 5-1 after a late bullpen meltdown. It also didn’t help that the bats never showed up.
First pitch for NLCS game 2 is scheduled for 3:05 PM PT on FS1. Clayton Kershaw gets the ball for LA and faces Atlanta right-hander Ian Anderson.
