Brian Wilson Blows Save, Has A Meltdown, Then Ends Up As Winning Pitcher
After blowing his second consecutive save opportunity for the San Francisco Giants — allowing four hits, two runs and a walk against the seven Detroit Tigers batters he faced — manager Bruce Bochy pulled him in the ninth inning.
Understandably frustrated, Wilson proceeded to go all Carlos Zambrano on the Gatorade cooler in the Giants' dugout. But the bearded closer didn't stop there. He found a rogue bat and swung at the cooler like it was a ball in the Home Run Derby. Wilson then attacked the wall — first with the bat, and then, in a more unnerving moment, with his pitching hand.
Asked if his display of rage left any lingering physical discomfort, Wilson responded:
"My hand is fine. Ask the wall."
