A bat flip on a game winning homer is about as bad ass as you can get. Bat flipping a ball that stays in play while trailing 6-0? Not so much.
Last night, Cubs rookie Wilson Contreras decided it would be a good idea to pull a Joey Bats and bat flip his way to a 6-1 game. Only problem? It never reached the stands.
We have a feeling that next time Contreras hits a deep ball, he’ll rethink the whole bat flip idea.
Tribe rocks the Cubs in game 1, 6-0.
Due to projected inclement weather, game 2 is set for 7:08pm ET.
