Every time the Los Angeles Dodgers and the San Diego Padres get together, it seems as if new story lines are created every day.
Fernando Tatis Jr. may have had an edge during his two-homer game against the Los Angeles Dodgers on Saturday night.
During his sixth-inning at-bat against Trevor Bauer, Tatis appeared to glance back toward Dodgers catcher Will Smith before the pitch. Seconds later, Tatis deposited his second homer of the night deep into the left-center seats.
Tatis celebrated multiple times after hitting his two home runs off Bauer, tossing his bat, stopping to shuffle his feet before reaching third base, and mimicking UFC star Conor McGregor - which Bauer has done previously - after crossing home plate. Tatis, 22, also covered one eye while rounding the bases on his first homer of the game, a nod to Bauer pitching with one eye closed during spring training.
In the videos above, Dave Roberts was asked about it and gave his thoughts on the matter.
