Yasiel Puig owns up to flipping off Indians fans in Dodgers’ 7-5 victory – Los Angeles Times

In a corner of the visitors’ clubhouse at Progressive Field, Cody Bellinger turned to Yasiel Puig. On Bellinger’s mind was the most pressing question after a 7-5 Dodgers victory over the Cleveland Indians.

“Hey,” Bellinger said, “who did you flip off?”

All around the room, members of the Dodgers checked their phones and chuckled. Puig shook his head and grumbled laughter. On a night when Bellinger became the first player to homer against relief ace Andrew Miller in 2017, Puig became a centerpiece of viral content. After Puig launched a home run, the television cameras captured him flashing two middle fingers to a group of fans.

“People were talking to me before the home run, and after the home run, they kept talking,” Puig said. “I reacted that way, and stooped to their level.”
