A video clip involving Max Muncy went viral over the weekend, though we finally know exactly what happened.
Muncy was batting in the bottom of the ninth inning on Friday night with his Los Angeles Dodgers down 9-7 to the Philadelphia Phillies. After starting the at-bat with a ball, Familia threw the second pitch right down the middle. Muncy took a called strike and then protested with the umpire afterwards.
Muncy left many perplexed — and got ridiculed — because he was protesting after an obvious strike.
Even Dodgers announcer Joe Davis was critical of Muncy during his play-by-play commentary at the time.
