CLEVELAND - It's not been a great last 24 hours for Cleveland sports fans.
And Los Angeles outfielder Yasiel Puig decided to send Tribe fans his best wishes by extending both middle fingers after a two-run homer in the second inning off of Trevor Bauer.
USA Today photographer David Richard captured the less-than-heartwarming moment:

According to For The Win, Puig told the Associated Press via interpreter that about four fans were taunting him prior to the home run.
“People were talking to me before the home run, and they talked to me after the home run,” Puig said. “I stooped to their level. It happened suddenly. It came out. There’s nothing I can do about it. There were about four of them. They were pretty close there.”
