Tuesday night wasn’t a shining moment for Houston Astros pitcher Ken Giles, who totally lost his composure after getting rocked by the New York Yankees in the ninth inning.
Giles came in to replace Justin Verlander, who had a fantastic start and held New York scoreless through eight innings. Then Giles came into the game and the wheels came off. Aaron Judge singled. Didi Gregorious doubled and then Gary Sanchez drove them both home with a three-run homer.
The relief pitcher was pulled after allowing another single, and he was so upset he punched himself en route to the dugout.
It was just a terrible loss of composure by Giles, who likely wishes he had a chance to do it all over again.
