The Los Angeles Dodgers' rivalry with Hector Neris reared a head once more, as the Philadelphia Phillies closer reportedly said "f--k you" and stared into the Dodgers dugout after recording a save following Thursday's 7-6 victory.
"He's blown about eight saves against us over the last two years," Dodgers infielder Max Muncy told reporters. "I guess he was finally excited he got one."
Neris gave up a solo home run to Alex Verdugo but was able to complete his 18th save of the season. The series has been a controversial one for the embattled closer, as he was suspended three games for throwing near David Freese's head during Monday's 9-8 win over the Dodgers.
